250 individually labelled cigarette lighters are handed out at train stations, or posted to those who email the artist requesting to start a smoking chain in their home town/country. The recipient photographs himself smoking a cigarette and submits it via SMS or email. He then passes the lighter on to a fellow smoker (either a friend or a stranger) and the process is repeated. Each lighter is numbered so they can be tracked on their travels. After 6 months of inactivity, a lighter is considered to be expired and is then refreshed so that particular chain can restart. The ultimate goal would be to have a stranger or friend pass one of the lighters back to the artist, after it having travelled via a number of other random people.
