In the course of a single day, each of us breathes in and out around 24,000 times. With each breath, irresistible signals are sent straight to the brain – smells, which in a matter of nanoseconds trigger emotions and memories, stirring up the subconscious in turn. For Sissel Tolaas, smell is a vital yet often overlooked tool for communication. Over nearly three decades, she has devoted her research-based artistic practice to the olfactory, rather than the visual or the auditory, thereby appealing to a different type of sensory experience in her audience.
