2014 Ali Van & Jaewook Lee Sense(avascularemain) Media: sound with Ali Van's voice-over (an excerpt from André Breton's Mad Love), scented plants, performance with sound; 1hour
Sense (avasularemain) is a collaborative project by Jaewook Lee and Ali Van. This project includes the participation of the audiences to experience how scents affect our mind and mood. People are asked to sit down while closing their eyes. They hear a voice-over of reading an excerpt from André Breton’s Mad Love, a surrealist book that shows love as an enigmatic place and the marvelous encounters with ordinary things. When the audiences listen to the audio-play, they smell a series of scented plants that are delivered to their noses. People listen, imagine, smell, and change their mood in concert with scented plants.
