LIMINAL SPACES | Multimedia Concert

Do red and green candies actually have different tastes? Do we indeed eat with our eyes first? In this installation, the audience is invited to explore the relationship between colour, smell, fragrance, and flavor by watching, smelling, tasting, and feeling candies, meditating on the nature of our perception. This interactive installation, titled ‘Meditation on Skittles,’ unfolded on February 7, 2022, as part of the Liminal Spaces multimedia project. Why Skittles? Well, it could have been any other candy. What’s unique about Skittles is that they come in various colours and emit different fragrances, yet they all share the same taste. This vividly illustrates how colour and smell can wield influence over our taste buds and, more broadly, our perception.
