Sonic Smells


Saturday, April 10, 2004

We hear how smell and sound go together. Jamie O'Shea is an artist and inventor of the olfactograph, a mechanism designed to capture and record scents, like that of a campfire or an indoor pool. In O'Shea's installations, he often pairs the olfactograph with audio recordings of the places they were captured. It's multimedia of a new kind. Produced by Trent Wolbe.
