Bompas & Parr created 'The Waft That Woos' installation at the Royal Shakespeare Company in the UK.

‘The Waft That Woos' is a mirror maze installed at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon in the UK. Designed by creative duo Bompas & Parr, the maze can be navigated by using your nose.

The installation, which was inspired by The Merry Wives of Windsor and Shakespearian comedy, requires visitors to follow the scent of aphrodisiac to get to the heart of the maze.

Bompas & Parr's installation is geared to give visitors a tangible Shakespearian experience, exploding narratives, characterisation and criticism to an architectural and inhabitable scale… The maze develops and expands the visual trickery found in The Merry Wives of Windsor to an explorable narrative environment.
