Design Indaba 2012: How Scent Can Educate Us About Prejudice
At Design Indaba 2012 PSFK spoke with scent expert, Sissel Tolaas about how her work subverts cultural preconceptions.
“I’m a professional in-betweener… it means that I’m everywhere and nowhere at the same time because I smell molecules and air is everywhere, so I can always work if I want to,” proclaims Norweigan-born odor artist, designer, and chemist, Sissel Tolaas. Her artistic practice explores olfaction — the sense of smell — by working with the odor molecules detected by our nose and the language we use to describe them.
