In the Lab at the Institute for Art and Olfaction - Saskia Wilson-Brown

Scent as creative practise
Smell is all around us. But how to grow more attuned to subtle differences? How to capture something fleeting? How can you work with scent as a creative practise? These and many more practical questions on Lab-work, are very welcome at our open lab. Meet the team, explore materials, and discuss strategies for working with scent.


Blend Session - Saskia Wilson-Brown

Art Olfaction Amsterdam
During four weeks, the Institute for Art and Olfaction is in residence at Mediamatic for a full programme on scent culture. Through open labs, perfume blending open sessions, and different programs on open source smell culture, we explore everything that reaches the nose and celebrate olfactory art and practise together. 

Institute for Art and Olfaction
Since 2012, the Institute for Art and Olfaction creates promotes accessible, facts-based curriculum devoted to the science and technical knowledge with scent. Through organising the Art Olfaction Awards, and by initiating and supporting experimental projects that utilise the medium of scent they celebrate scent culture.
