THE KISS


2016

1 min, sound, HD video

A contact between two bodies. An intense sharing of information. A chemical cocktail in the brain.


The Kiss is an audiovisual work that explores a simple gesture acted out between two lovers.

The bodies are depicted as dispersed particles that come together to form two people kissing.

The work was created using motion capture, particle systems and real time randomization techniques.
