ONLINE SMOKING ROOM FOR RHIZOME, NEW MUSEUM NEW YORK

This artwork was commissioned by Rhizome for This is the END: The E-Cigarette in Context symposium. Read more of our views on the topic on Dazed.

The backdrop of the room is designed as a cooling surface of fresh and and air purifying Peace Lilies, NASA’s #1 air purifying plant used in space stations. We also decorated the green air-filtering leaves with virtual netspeak graffiti tags.
