Project: Scented Reality
Scented Reality is an installation by Fe Wigman which comments on the ways in which our moral and cultural backgrounds influence what we find disgusting. The work consists of five white rooms, each with its own smell identity. The audience is taken through this assembly of different odours that tell a story about the journey from life to death and the correlation between human and nature.
Thesis: Scented Reality
In her Thesis, Fe Wigman argues that the sense of smell is our strongest sense. It makes us aware of how we are constantly influenced by our olfaction and how we all create our own 'scented reality' by connecting scents to moments, memories and emotions.
