The Smoking Room

KADK project


Concept, illustration, animation, editing


School project at KADK during my BA degree.

The amount of young cigarette smokers is rising in Denmark – but instead of pointing fingers, why not ask them why they are smoking?

In this project, I conducted interviews with young smokers, asking them about the many aspects surrounding their smoking habit. The interviews were recorded and edited into small audio snippets, which created the foundation for the animation accompagnying the audio. This resulted in 6 different portraits, focusing on the smoker’s stories, giving them space and a right to be heard.
