Smoke and mirrors is a metaphor for a deceptive or insubstantial explanation or description. Its a term describing magician’s illusions, where magicians make objects appear or disappear amid a confusing burst of smoke and also a slang for magic acts and freak show displays that depend on ‘trompe l’oeil’ effects. More generally the term may refer to any sort of presentation by which an audience is intended to be deceived. The works title comes as a camouflage to a cryptic narrative. A gas station is steaming, a car roof set on fire. Steam patterns and mini cloud formations appear and disappear in unassuming locations. A silhouette of a man blinks on and off nervously. Filmed in the old central bus station in south Tel Aviv and installed accordingly to a life size figure dimensions.
