Watch Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto’s mesmerising artwork take shape in the exhibition Making Worlds.

The soft fabric architecture of Just like drops in time, nothing 2002 is almost body-like in form. It fills the space not only with its physical presence but also with the aromatic intensity of over 400 kilograms of spices including turmeric, cumin, pepper, cloves, fenugreek and paprika. Engaging the senses, this is a work you smell before you see!
