Shrimp Paste Sonata

This smell and sound installation is a tribute to the legendary stinky shrimp paste – “mắm tôm” of Vietnam. The two flying objects resemble the fly chasers that one can see at any market in Vietnam. The audience can interact with the installation using a magnetic pick up to detect the changes in the magnetic field around the “fly chasers”.
This excerpt was recorded at the exhibition of Siedl/Cao at Manzi Hanoi, December 2018.
