Big, Big, Cigarette
See the cigarette, check out the Great American Smoke out video. This Cigarette is one of ours.
When we got the job to make the really, really big, wearable cigarette, I had to go out and buy a pack of cigarettes. We needed to custom-dye the filter fabric, and needed a color sample.
Then, we had to light cigarettes so that we could understand how the ash bent when it burned.
This was a wonderful project. Making ash on a giant cigarette from fabric, sequins and open cell, charcoal, filter foam is a pretty swell project.
