A laboratory that translates whatsapp messages into smell.
The agency, Detour asked me to exhibit my installation Osmothèque. Osmothèque is an interactive installation that plays with the viewers senses. The story was designed and installed into a creative piece. The first part consists in smelling a message that has been analysed. There is a message with its representation in the form of a graph and a smell. Four olfactive families were chosen (Floral, Wooden, Spicy & Citrus) and they were associated with distinct emotions. For this message the amount of emotions chosen generates the graphic representation.
The participant is invited to read and interpret the message based on the fragrance they have in their hands.
