The Smell of Red - Cinnamon

with Nathaniel Stern

Vancouver Art Museum, Vancouver - August 15-16 2015



The smell of red proposes a counterpoint of movement, smell, taste and colour. The feedback loops between air currents and mist, spices and electronics, architectural and sculptural elements, stasis and interaction, amplify how movement and transformation are sensed. The work seeks to create the conditions for the exploration of those thresholds of experience where change is barely perceptible. It asks how the smell of red affects the event of time.
