Smokescreen

1969 Swansea, Wales
Coauthor: Theo Botschuijver

Production: Eventstructure Research Group, Amsterdam

For this installation and performance, a row of industrial smoke canisters was placed on the ground along the entire frontage of Swansea University. Once they were lit, these smoke canisters generated an immense and thick smokescreen, behind which the university building completely disappeared. Sections of this smokescreen were in different colours—white, yellow and black.

At a parallel event at the Swansea Festival, a room was filled with thick white smoke to the point where the room walls and the people inside all completely disappeared in the haze.
