On 27 September 2019, after two years of designing and building, the “Labyrinth of the Senses” (LotS) was unveiled during the opening of the Uitfestival Almere. LotS is a travelling art object in the form of a “soap bubble labyrinth” in which visitors experience through their senses that making conscious choices can contribute to their perceived health and happiness. In LotS you experience, feel, see, hear, smell and taste the issues of your lifestyle. The experience bubble smell [Scent] lets you smell stories from all over the world. In colour [Colour], you learn to create a composition playfully, causing the whole space to change colour, and how you can influence your emotion. The “Food Art project” in taste [Taste] shows our desire to stay healthy and young. In sound [Sound] you completely relax and in feeling [Touch] you can touch, and you are touched. And in the last bubble about the future [Next Senses] you explore the unknown. In five short films about intimate technology, you are referred to systems that colonize our body, influence our behaviour and determine our identity.
Various events took place in the run-up to the unveiling:
