Exploring Scent as an Interactive Storytelling Tool
Tuesday, March 15

Austin Convention Center
531 E 4th St
Scent is a powerful virtual reality tool to immerse audiences in a story. In this workshop you will learn and experience what smell can add to your own practice. After an introduction to the characteristics of scent, designers from the Institute for Art & Olfaction and the Sense of Smell Project, will walk you through the process of scent design. You will explore scent design strategies (blending, diffusing and scratching) and experiment with some of the mechanical, technical and digital solutions used when working with scent. By the end of this workshop you will have created an immersive experience with scent and have a better understanding of using scent as a storytelling tool.
