The Smell Laboratory offers workshops about the sense of smell for groups, institutions and companies.
The sense of smell is a crucial function of the human body. It warns us for potential dangers in our direct environment and has a crucial role in our experience of space and our relation to others. Smell affects human behaviour, perception of time, memories, emotions and influences decision making. There are many possibilities to use smell as a powerful medium and tool in art, design and science.
Sense of smell
The workshop sense of smell focuses on our unique organ, the nose. In this 1-day workshop, participants will get an introduction about smell, how it works, what’s been done in the olfactory art realm until the moment, and will learn how to obtain an extract from an organic material. Participants will also be able to take a sample of the distilled scent home.
