Share your vision on a virtual luggage label
Bijgewerkt: sep 9
The installation Out of the Box was originally designed for the exhibition RAW MATERIALS (jan 8 - march 24, 2019) to capture visitors associations and memories with the all the presented art and fragrances.
Besides the olfactory artworks I also provided special wooden boxes with touchable materials (art details) and the same scents as used in the artworks, to provide access for the blind and visual impaired.
The installation Out of the box consists out of the olfactory artwork 'Been there - Dejá Vù' and vintage suitcases; stacked high and lashed with tires on an antique elephant carrier.
Visitors could leave a luggage label with their associations on the presented artworks and fragrances and attach them at the suitcases and straps. Thus making this an organic, living artwork; as it ‘grew’ during the exhibition.
At the end of the exhibition I collected at about 250 comments of various scent perceptions, experiences, memories. And surprising (or not); some of the where really alike and universal :)
So now you are here, visitor of my first virtual Olfactory ART tour ever:
How lovely it would be if, after you have been looking at the art works, sniffing the scents..(kindly provided via Botanica 2020)and hearing the olfactory stories,(maybe done a meditation) you would participate in this 'Out of the box' experiment!
As visitor of this virtual Botanica exhibition
you are challenged to share your associations
with the fragrances you have been smelling
in the olfactory ART tour RAW MATERIALS
Just create a virtual ‘luggage label’ by leaving your personal 'Smell-o-gram' in the comment section below. If you don't want to login: just send me an email and I will add your smell-o-gram label for you! Let's see if we share same thoughts, emotions and perhaps some collective memories!
