Smell Lab #1
During the first meeting, Klara Ravat and Claudia Mannigel presented the Smell Lab and gave some examples about the role of scent in art as well as olfactory rituals across cultures. Participants shared their interests in and experiences working with smell, which were documented in form of a list and idea map.
We conducted one blind/blindfolded smell exercise which involved describing an unknown smell, which turned out to be cedar wood. This exercise implied great diversity in perception and vocabulary.
The first meeting was very lively and sparked informal conversations afterwards at the bar.
Organised by Klara Ravat and Claudia Mannigel (community supporters) in cooperation with Spektrum
