Explore how scent informs art and innovation at this symposium and day of experimentation, in collaboration with Escentric Molecules.
Speakers include leading global scent researcher and ‘nasalnaut’, Sissel Tolaas; radical perfumer, Geza Schoen, whose Molecule 01 is a cultural phenomenon as much as a scent; Paul Schütze, whose practice bridges contemporary art, music and fragrance; collaborators Grace Boyle (founder of The Feelies) and Nadjib Achaibou (perfumer and member of the collective Les Flaneurs), whose multi-sensory storytelling incorporates perfumery, perception science, virtual reality and more; and rhinologist and specialist in the neuroscience of smell, Simon Gane. The day is hosted by Susan Irvine, Creative Project Leader for Olfactive Projects in partnership with International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) at the Royal College of Art.
This is an opportunity to hear from extraordinary pioneers in the fields of art, scent and neuroscience and discover why collaborations between olfaction and art are in focus now.
