Tofu Tales

Scents that surround us are invisible stories filled with information, useful among other senses to different organisms in order to survive. Someone's body odor can e.g. reveal lifestyle habits and state of well-being, which is of importance in terms of reproduction.

In a similar way, the smell from artifacts tell stories of age and character, which determines how its surroundings will adapt to them. In Tofu Tales, every encounter becomes an exchange of stories when the unique odor of the visitor meets the ever-changing smell of the tofu, as the tofu continues to break down throughout the exhibition.
