The workshop explores how design research can be used as a creative and active force for rethinking ephemeral phenomena, such as smell. The event offers participants the opportunity to engage and interact with the intangible, considering the potential for sensory communication beyond language, and engage interactive objects as mechanisms for materialising the intangible. These explorations aim to broaden the understanding of participants on how the intangible can shape our lives in more meaningful and open ways. It is a probe into the possibilities of Communication Design for individuals and society.
