Where There's Smoke

In Where There’s Smoke, Lance Weiler unravels the secrets of his enigmatic father — a volunteer firefighter and amateur fire scene photographer — and two devastating fires that struck the Weiler family in the early 1980s in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. In the final months of his battle with colon cancer, Weiler’s father invites Lance to interview him, and these conversations reignite 30 years of wondering… were those fires more than tragic accidents?


Where There’s Smoke is an immersive storytelling experience about life, loss, and memory that reveals itself to be both deeply personal and universally resonant. On view in the first-floor River Gallery, the exhibition employs elements of immersive theatre, interactive documentary, and emergent technology that guides people through a deconstructed, abstracted exploration of Lance’s father’s life, offering interactive prompts along the way.
