Come to Maki’s little atelier and savour her mini-artworks to smell and taste. Extraordinary mini-cocktails and snacks, influenced by molecular gastronomy, with a Japanese touch. UEDA Maki is one of the few artists in the world using smell as a medium. Her interest lies in the scent in the real life, such as the smell of space, the smell of food and drink, the smell of a person, and the smell related to the memories. A CAMERA JAPAN favourite, she has presented her smell and taste related projects and installations worldwide.
