NO(I)SE – first olfactory movie via Smeller 2.0


Wolfgang Georgsdorf
Olfactory movie
26 min. sound, colour, scent

The realisation of Wolfgang Georgsdorf’s “Smeller 2.0 / Olfactorium” for the expo “Sinnesrausch / Sensory Sensation” in 2012 triggered multiple possibilities for using the instrument, as scent compositions and scent sequences can now be programmed and replayed with it. Now the artist is presenting NO(I)SE, his first olfactory movie as an installation for the cinema on behalf of the OK-Lab in the Upper Austrian Cultural Quarter in Linz for the filmfestival CROSSING EUROPE. A concentrated intimate chamber piece for cinema, that comes along as a powerful document of the very kinds of signals that form the perceptive components of cinema and its extension: Darkness, light and colour, silence, tone and sound – and now scent.
