SENSE OF SMELL
SENSE OF SMELL
is an international co-creation and research project designed by Communication and Multimedia Design (CMD) Breda at the AVANS University of Applied science, the Netherlands, and part of the European cross-border network VIVID (Value Increase by Visual Design).
Within this project, teachers and students explore the amazing world of scent. Their aim is to rethink and prototype the possibilities of scent for strategic communication, way finding, storytelling, interaction and media design.
SENSE OF SMELL
has developed prototypes for interactive installations, sensual experiences and immersive events.
The 'scent printer', developed within the project is used to create the sound/scent experience of
. In September 2014 all research and developments were published in Sense of Smell: a book of ideas, concepts and engaging new thoughts on the subject of smell. On December 2nd 2014 SENSE OF SMELL organized a conference and exhibition at the
in Breda with keynote presentations by Caro Verbeek, Peter de Cupere, James Auger, Prof. Dr. Ep Köster and Bernardo Juan Fleming. Furthermore a 'sweatshop' was organized for artists, olfactory experts and designers, students and teachers to co-create new concepts. The exhibition featured the
installation alongside works by James Auger, Peter de Cupere, Lucy McRae, Liza Witte and Joris Petterson.

Can you experience someone's death up close and personal? Famous people who have died tragic deaths can leave ineradicable scars to our collective memory. J.F. Kennedy, Lady Diana... Till this day, the way they died still toys with our imagination. Many theories about the exact cause of death still revolve around the deaths of J.F. Kennedy and Lady diana. Wouldn't we like to have been there?
will recreate a famous person's last few living minutes by using scent. We all know the images of that open car that slowly drives through the streets of Dallas, the President happily waving to the crowd. And then, those few fatal shots. What must it have been like to be near that car? You would smell an autumn wind, the grass, the leather car seats, Jacky Kennedy's perfume, exhaust fumes mingled with the somewhat musty scent of that limousine, and then suddenly the penetrating scent of blood, brains and gunpowder drilling its way into your nostrils.
is a series of four portraits of celebrities in their final moments. This installation will reconstruct these moments as closely as possible, using only sound and scents. This will create a short but intimate experience. By taking away any visual keys, visitors experience these portraits more intensely.
