safeway“I don‘t think this sort of production and staging is done a lot,” muses Solomon Rosenzweig, president of DaVinci Fusion.

As they turn on California Ave and drive past the numerous old military hanger type buildings, they soon realize that they are not heading to someplace ordinary. Valet parkers in white coats rush out to greet them in front of the San Francisco Bay, with the Bay bridge looming like a giant toy in the background. They have arrived at a very special event at Treasure Island, Ca. more

Look Solutions’ Viper NT Adds Fog Effects To Artist Lisa Kirk’s Revolution! Installation

Revolution!Artist, activist and curator Lisa Kirk features fog effects created with Look Solutions‘ Viper NT fog generator in her latest project, REVOLUTION!, a multimedia installation at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, an affiliate of the Museum of Modern Art located in Long Island City, NY. Consistently challenging white box aesthetics and institutional elitism with democratic verve, Kirk‘s work has evolved as a series of scripted events and their ephemeral fall-out. Her projects have served to dramatize a shift in focus to the significance of social rituals.

REVOLUTION! began as a fragrance developed in collaboration with Symrise perfumers, based on interviews with journalists, activists, and political radicals who responded to the question, “What is the smell of revolution?” Using the resulting fragrance, which blends the odor of smoke, gasoline, tear gas, burnt rubber and decaying flesh, Kirk addresses the issue of contemporary luxury branding with interactive perfume displays, ad campaigns, a mock front-page story in The Baltimore Sun and the organization of the Revolutionary Knitting Circle. more
