Frank Bloem is an artist who uses scent as his primary medium. He studied Fine Arts at the Rietveld academy. In the summer of 2016 Frank changed his focus from visual art to olfactory based works. He started The Snifferoo, a perfume laboratory and a place for education and experiments in the realms of scent. This led to various commissions from personalized perfumes to the recreation of elephant smells for the Amsterdam Zoo. Frank also gives workshops at Mediamatic, including Composing Fragrance, Distilling a Scent Bouquet and Open Aroma Lab, and holds monthly Odorama lecture evenings together with Caro Verbreek.
Niklaus Mettler is a perfumer and art director who works with scent in a variety of contexts. He has worked with artists from different fields and established his own line of perfumes. His brand In’n’out Fragrances stands for a deliberate focus on socially incorrect perfume inspired by man-made places and materials of daily life. For Mediamatic Niklaus created Filtered Beans, for which he extracted the flavors of three different coffee blends he found around Amsterdam. The perfume was developed for our sensuous game around city planning; Het Parfum. Niklaus gives Designing Incense and Open Aroma Lab workshops at Mediamatic.
