Untitled (Red)

Mixed Media, Dimensions Variable (61" High), 2000

 Untitled (Red) is a bong for up to four people. In addition to the smoking appatatus, the piece includes four fake fur beanbag chairs which I designed and manufactured.


Each smoker has their own acrylic mouthpiece and a personal smoking unit -- a 10" acrylic tube outfitted with a bowl and carb. These are connected to the central unit by flexible red tubing. In the central unit there are twelve red acrylic tubes (24", 40", and 50" -- each smoker uses one of each length) These tubes may be filled with varying amounts of water, depending on the user's lung strength.

Each of the four stations is completely independent. There is no crossover of smoke between the participants and no minimum number of people needed to generate enough suction.
