smoke signals communication

a hybrid visualization system that explores the dynamic & spatial qualities of smoke & light in relation to contemporary mobile SMS messaging technologies. a real-time smoke & light setup was developed to create a typographic ambient communication environment. local & remote (online) participants are invited to communicate with the project by sending SMS messages to 1 of 2 smoke signals located at the event, which are then visualized via the responsive nature of "ephemeral memory clouds"
