Kiss was made in collaboration with scientists at Nokia Bell Labs in which I used their Schlieren imaging machinery. 

The work Kisses reflects on a hope that comes as a byproduct of longing. A blown kiss is a flight of fancy, it requires both parties to believe that a kiss is truly flying from one person to another.Its is something that never truly existed, a kiss that never truly happened.

With the use of Schlieren imaging,a system commonly used in fluid dynamics research, the blown kiss can actually be seen traveling through the air. Showing us that,a blown kiss is as real as any other you might receive, that blown kisses really do make it all the way to the cheeks they are aimed at.
