Tokyo Drift

There’s new olfactory art to check out if you are in Tokyo the next couple of weeks. Olfactory artist Maki Ueda has teamed up with architect Makoto Yokomizo to produce “Invisible White.”

The work invites viewers into and through a darkened space where they must rely sound, touch and smell. Ms. Ueda designed three smells to help them navigate their way. She describes her work and the technology behind it on her blog. (It’s in Japanese but there are lots of pictures.)

The show opened yesterday and runs through August 9, so don’t dawdle! It’s at the Okamura Garden Court Show Room, New Otani Garden Court 3F, Kioi-cho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo.
