like it/like it not... by Sissel Tolaas

Sissel Tolaas, whose work revolves around sounds and smells, has created a special Messestadt perfume. By pressing a button at one of the smell and sound machines set up in three places in the suburb, users can access this intense Messestadt aroma, along with names and evocative texts in various languages. Thus, Tolaas's perfume will reach visitors on their way to the trade fair grounds, people strolling along the Promenade and residents dashing to get their cars in an underground car park. The perfume is also available in a limited number of bottles. In accordance with Residents´wishes a new variant of the Messestadt perfume was produced in the summer of 2003 and installed in two stands. A new series of evocative verbal accompaniments, in twenty-four language, can be accessed by pressing a button on the stands.
