olfactory geographies

A serene meditative environment which explores the sense of smell through the removal of light and color. The user sits in this confined space with the lights off on cushioned floor seats. The room is then filled a fresh, clean citrus aroma reminiscent of the surrounding sterile whiteness. The scent is controlled by fans pushing the fragrance up through and out of the space. Before the aroma begins to habitualize, the occupants turn off the scent by the use of a remote. When the air is cleared of the scent, the diffuser is once again activated based on the occupants scent perception.
