Location: Weston Game Lab Classroom

John Anderson & Tammy Burnstock

Can't be there in person?

Talk Description:

A participatory scented “Show, Smell and Tell” demonstrating how storytelling with scents can engage ALL of our senses and heighten emotion.

“New Media” at its most interesting is experienced across multiple sensory modalities: visual, auditory, haptic (touch), somatosensory (physical sensation), and olfactory (smell).

Smell, our most primitive sense, is memory, emotion and THE final frontier in opening the door to full sensory engagement in immersive experiences.

The scented documentary “In Glorious Smell-O-Vision!” explores the secret history and promising future of scented cinema.
