Visual / Senses
This book not only captures with tenderness the texture of decorative elements of traditional Chinese temples in glorious black and white, but also the scent of a temple. This book is printed with special aroma ink. The scent of a temple is created with Jay Cee Global, and then the essence of the scent is mixed into the inks to print this book. Through visual lens, the forgotten, the ordinary and the archaic are given stature in this book. It invites readers to take a second look at the overlooked and be engaged through the senses of sight and smell as memories are evoked; new possibilities are imagined and personal connections are explored.
