Spice Clouds

Spice Clouds
Photo Description:
This installation is a mixture of both 2D and 3D spice clouds. I used insulation foam to create the base of the 3D cloud and cut a hole in the middle so it can be entered, then I added spices all around and inside the cloud. Creating an interactive piece allows the viewers to fully activate their senses and immerse themselves in the piece. I chose to make my pieces in the form of clouds because the nature of smells and aromas is very ephemeral much like that of a cloud. In one moment they can seem to form out of nowhere and moments later they disappear. Smells silently diffuse through spaces and permeate the senses, and similar to clouds, they can be sensed but not tangibly grasped.
