The Smell Tour

Advisor: Dov Ganchrow


Despite its immense contribution to how we experience the world, the sense of smell is a neglected sense. It has the ability to disconnect us temporarily from our place and transport us in time. It can transform an empty and anonymous space into a personal and meaningful place. The project examines how personal memory is expressed in a situation of collective memory by creating a smell tour experience, which allows participants to experience a variety of paradigmatic scents and concludes with an intimate encounter with the components of the scent.
