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.

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
