Things I’ve been up to recently…
OlfactoStroll has grown out of my PhD research developing a method of Deep Smelling.
Deep Smelling is a meditative, experiential and process-based art practice, which brings attention to our sense of smell.
The smell walk has been configured with Derry city in mind, however you can apply the principles of the walk to anywhere in the world, including your own home.The podcast/guided walk, is accompanied by a series of Deep Smelling protocols, visible through the CCA Derry-Londonderry gallery windows.
Smell has taken on special significance in the past year due to the pandemic. If you have experienced a loss of change in your sense of smell AbScent.org is a UK charity that offers support and advice to people with smell disorders.
