Olfactory education in art and design

Norman, Joanna and Pozzani, Nicola (2018) Olfactory education in art and design. In: Henshaw, Victoria , McLean, Kate , Medway, Dominic , Perkins, Chris and Warnaby, Gary, (eds.) Designing with Smell Practices, Techniques and Challenges. New York, USA : Routledge. pp. 178-186. ISBN 9781138955530


This chapter examines multisensory techniques used for olfactive education and communication to encourage artists and designers to explore scent effectively, to connect practice to multisensory, life-focused design. Practical examples are taken from teaching MA Design and Fashion students at Kingston University and BA Art and Design students at Bern University of the Arts to incorporate fragrance in their work, as well as tips from Kingston's Design with Scents interactive five-day course on how to design a 'scent for space'.
