This work explores Singaporeans’ relationship with their olfactory urban environment through a series of performative mapping activities by the local population in June 2015.

As humans we move our way through urban environments as sensory beings, gaining knowledge partly through the involuntary sense of olfaction. This project is designed to explore human ‘entangled lines of life, growth and movement… a meshwork of interwoven lines’ (Ingold, 2011) as experienced through smell. How do smell perceptions, movement, knowledge and description interweave to create textures across the city landscape?
