La Prairie and Maotik – Perfume, sound & the multisensory

La Prairie and Maotik
Sense of Blue (2021)

La Prairie celebrates the launch of its Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil with a digital installation offering an entrancing trip into the twilight zone at Art Basel and Frieze London.

La Prairie’s debut offering at Frieze London is Sense of Blue, a multisensory immersive installation that plunges the viewer into the depths of the night. The piece is by French digital artist Maotik, best known for using computer-generated algorithms to create reality-shifting environments.

Here, he deploys that same technique, although this time using motion sensors, low-frequency sounds, and shifting blue and black lights to simultaneously distort the viewer’s sense of space and heighten awareness of their immediate surroundings.
