Olfactological Adventure installed!

The Olfactological Adventure is an attempt to codify the emerging interdisciplinary discipline of sniffing and remembering into a multi-gendered and generational praxis. Challenged by the diversity of odor-producing artifacts in the extensive Elsewhere collection, the work slices a nasal window into the formerly barricaded edifice of olfactory research…or it might just be kinda fun to play…
