Diary of Smells:
Site-specific interactive installation based on avian architecture for its construction. 1000 resin/glass molded branches, video projection and six channels sound algorithmically manipulated by computer programming, light, mirrored floor tiles, four smells (Smell of Nest, Open Sea, Hot Sun and Wet Earth)
In this installation the 1000 resin/glass branches were configured as an abandoned nest. Smell of Nest exhaled from the sculpture and the other 3 smells were experienced through personal dispensers. Video projected smell memories given previously through a smell-memory-blog by the public.
Exhibited at SESC São Carlos,
São Carlos, São Paulo, Brazil.
