Abstract

Creating a smellmap of a city is a subjective, collaborative exer-cise. During a series of smellwalks local participants foreground their sense of smell and name perceived aromas emanating from the urban smellscape. Data and conversations arising from the walks are ‘analysed’ and a representative smellscape of the city is visualised as a map. Scents; the nasal stimuli and a catalyst for discussion accompany the map. As a map of what we don’t know, indications of geo-located smell possibilities and ephemeral scents combine visualisation with the olfactory to place the emphasis on human interaction with sensory data to create meaning and an understanding of place.
