Kiss was made in collaboration with scientists at Nokia Bell Labs in which I used their Schlieren imaging machinery. Schlieren imaging is commonly used in fluid dynamics, as it can show hidden air currents on a television monitor that would usually be invisible to the naked eye. In Kiss the Schlieren apperatus is used to capture a person blowing a kiss. When we blow someone a kiss we pretend that we are actually blowing someting physical, as if a kiss is a real object. With this video we can actually see the kiss traveling through the air from the persons hand. Although it lasts only a split second, we can still see the kiss leave the person’s hand and continue on its way towards the its lucky recciever.
