Terminal (2011-2012) installation - film-noir meets 'Sculpture' with a stage and spotlight on the action. The viewer negates the stage and an LCD screen mounted on the wall displaying black and white text dialogue.

A conversation takes place regarding unknown entities and an attempt at communication unfolds as smoke rings puff up from an empty plastic bottle. The attempt at discourse ends with breakdown in communication.

The piece is powered by an air-compressor and solenoid valves that click, rhythmically as the text appears on the video, the smoke rings emerge from the neck of the bottle, disperse a sweet smelling cloud drifts around the space and hangs in the circle the spotlight casts.
