Breath: Scent of a Forest

olfactory device
glass sculpture & micro forest
Milicz Forestry Park, Poland

The sense of smell as an evocative connection associated with memory, experience and place.

Intangible landscapes are particularly defined by scents, providing significant information on micro and macro aspects of our environment. The glass piece contains a fragment of forest. As people approach to the piece, an ethereal scape enhances the olfactory experience. The glass device proposes to explore the human sense of smell as an intangible connection to the forest landscape.

Glass exploration: The piece has been made with glass blowing techniques in the laboratories of the Faculty of Arts in Wrocław. The city of Wrocław, besides its natural surrounding scenery, is also recognized as the cultural center of Lower Silesia, playing an important role in the history of the glass crafts in Poland.
