Group Identity Olfactory Sculpture
Essential oil formula
based on collective information obtained from creative associates by way of Olfactory Experience Questionnaires and interviews. The common olfactory culture of the group established the Imprint formula.
Olfactory imprinting is genetic, environmental, and culturally acquired
odor information. The creation of Imprint was
based on information obtained from artist participants in the exhibition in
order to formulate an olfactory expression that would unite others
physically with their mental and emotional dimensions. Since we are all
individually conditioned from childhood to particular aromas — this
is a character scent of olfactory memories and carries with it the
emotional images of home, family, nature, work, creative process, sleep,
savored tastes, and deeply important life experiences.
Created for the collaborative Exhibition exploring identity, Plays Well
With Others, curated by Daria Dorosh, where Imprint was diffused into the gallery spaces for the
duration of the exhibitions.
