How not smell another planet? As a refrigerator at 03? As the box enter the new sneakers? Or the inside of an astronaut space suit? A three-day exhibition in the English church crypt of the 19th century, this weekend instead promised answers. represent “The scent of other worlds” eight “sniffable” sculptures-one for each of the other planets in our solar system, and the sun – and a “soundscape interplanetary” with the cosmic themed cocktails. On Saturday, the scent brought to the city a group of Londoners forward to other worlds in the shabby chic of the Church hall of St. John’s East End. In the crypt below, each sculpture on a pedestal – labeled represented and connected to the type of folding mattresses used swell with the facts about the planet. When stepped on pumping up the scent spritzed sculptures. Some might put MIT Space Week on March 13 for a 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, where the famous astronauts could sniff. Instead of the planet literal rendering of each breath, it turned out the company’s fragrance design had the information on their perfume composition of the surface and atmosphere as the inspiration for a series of fragrances. There had been a “slavish” devotion to physical, admitted the project organizers. Jupiter’s swirling gases were, while “AMBROXAN.RTM and sparkle orange pretty incense bring.” With shown “And super and aldehydes that ease of spreading lead iso,” according to a description Whatever were the things that smelled pleasantly musky: nothing rotten eggs, cat urine, or bitter almond-associations of sulfur layers, ammonia and hydrocyanic acid, which sheath of Jupiter. In a press release earlier had someone hits a gong and a man in a silver jacket occurred between planets, the amount to be addressed. He introduced himself as Sam Bompas. “The exhibition is a line between the nose and the stars are distinguished,” said Bompas. Next Milky shone on his bed to him Jupiter. The three pieces of quartz-like rock that Venus was shining. You could find all the way through Saturn, which was made of blown glass. But that was not the point. “We spend so much of our time to articulate the visual world” Bompas continued. But the scent of other worlds, offering “a wealth of experience with the senses lower Aristotelian.” Bompas is half of the duo behind Bompas & Parr, a food design company, named jelly sweets Shaping as famous buildings and claims to be the first group to have recorded the oscillation gelatin sound. Other projects included the vaporized alcohol to develop the public to “drink” through the skin and eyes, and people with a berry that tricks the tongue tasted sour flavors, such as sweet “food journey” African. More recently, Bompas has obsessed with the human sense of smell: the smells differently cerebral decoding whichever nostril sniffs; which of the two is dominant switch nostrils all day; and shortly after shaking hands with someone, we find a way to get a taste of our own. “There are secrets and wonders of the universe,” he said, “but there are also mysteries and miracles in your own body.” In the crypt of East London, he repeated pounding on foot odor place as a candle shop Send made pumps. Lucy Hardcastle, the London artist that every planet sculpture is designed to smell their scents associated for the first time. They fit their idea of what would be the planet? “I do not know if I can say for sure,” he said, “but I know that people in terms of psychology are to accept or not what you are presented with.” Hardcastle enjoy working with fragrances because they are on has the power to transport the audience in unpredictable, uncontrollable ways. “I do not really have a say. Are you there, even if I do not want to be.” There are some in person by the scent of other worlds. People have gone to the moon and rovers on Mars and Venus. “There is the smell of gunpowder spent,” Apollo 17 astronaut Gene Cernan said Moondust who in 1972 returned to his lunar module had stepped on, which is probably due to the lunar surface silica rich. The sulfuric acid clouds of Venus could do that smells like rotten eggs. Meanwhile, the largest satellite of nitrogen and benzene mist swirls of Saturn, Titan is probably from a radio station. Uranus, it was confirmed last year, the terrible smells. But even with spectrometer readings and analyze light signatures, the scent of a Distillation planet is a lot of guesswork. Jupiter Poland to be different from its tropics? If the sea of tranquility moon and Ocean of Storms smell the same? Visitors Bompas & Parr does not show this Saturday nobody was the wiser. But they had stepped on a dreary London Evening by a plywood door and briefly visited another world. Picture copyright by James Riley The Scent of Other Worlds
