"Adams' work straddles the domains of performance and installation art; his drawings are designed and created specific for their space, and immediately destroyed at the close of the exhibition. The feathery line-quality of his graphite drawings evoke plumes of smoke, equally transitory and in keeping with the larger work’s momentary existence. Alongside the installation's gestural work will also be a monitor looping footage of Adams creating the piece itself. Together Efflux's components offer a metaphor for evolution - moving the viewer through creation, existence, and eventual destruction."
