The making of ‘Orion’


Author Notes

An electronic score accompanies a monochrome study of smoke

Amsterdam-based artist and filmmaker Rogier van der Zwaag talks about the video he made for Dutch electronic producer Sjamsoedin:

“I spent months trying to sculpture shapes out of smoke and found that vaporizers make for the perfect shaping tool. I created a choreographed storm, featuring two evolving bodies of smoke, blending and continuing alongside the stream, dancing to the music of Sjamsoedin’s Orion.

“I spent months trying to sculpture shapes out of smoke”


"Blowing my way through hundreds of attempts, I composed all my takes into one continuous composition.”
