Who is this for?

Are you working on a scent-related project and in need of some help? Do you want to discover the creative applications of scent? Do you have a great concept, but are lacking the technical knowledge? Are you looking for the aroma that completes your art piece?

During the session, you will have a 30-minute consultation with Frank to discuss anything relating to your work: any ideas you may have, or challenges you may be facing. You can expect an honest, invigorating conversation, which leaves you with plenty of food for thought.

Frank Bloem

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, Smelling like a Beast, Open Aroma Lab, and previously held monthly Odorama lecture evenings together with Caro Verbreek.
