Sacrificial Corrotion
Perfumed oil Parfumiste: Sumire Miyazaki This work uses fragrance. A uniquely formulated fragrant oil was applied to the walls. The ingredients in this fragrant oil were controlled to have a yellowish tint. Fragrance is one of the fastest-disappearing elements among many forms of expression. This work assumes that the yellowing, which will appear on the surface sometime after the fragrance has completely dissipated, is its trace, but it is only a substitute for the fragrance.
