As my eyes adjusted to both the darkness of the gallery and the swirling pink and fuchsia flowers projected on the walls and floor, it hit me: a blast of sweet pea, maybe tuberose, perhaps peony? The fragrance drifted through the galleries (and my mask), and I mentally connected the smell to the explosions of digital flowers surrounding me. The perfume was mildly intoxicating but not too artificial: It was a heightened interpretation of what spring flowers smell like, rather than a re-creation. That is also an apt description for “Continuity,” the inaugural exhibition at the Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang Pavilion at the Asian Art Museum by Tokyo-based art collective teamLab.
