| Training the senses : Talking Smell |
What is it that makes scents so significant yet difficult to grasp?

Smells form part of our knowing, but they are elusive, often disappearing before they can be pinned down with speech. Scents can bring us strong memories of places and events, yet we find it hard to identify even quite strong smells, including bleach, rosemary and lavender. Research shows that people growing up in some non-western cultures have a more developed vocabulary for scents. And that Europeans find it easier to identify scents, the more they talk about these scents. What is it that makes scents so significant yet difficult to grasp? In this session, we will be identifying and expressing smells with director of the Institute for Art and Olfaction Saskia Wilson-Brown, reading about scent with poet Emma Crebolder and analyzing the relationship between smells and words with neuro-scientist Laura Speed.

November 14
7 – 9 pm

The Rocket Trail

On Friday 9 November at 19:30, we will host in our basement the preview screening of the first chapter of the project The Rocket Trail, titled RAIN KIDS (directed by Gabriele Mariotti)

The Rocket Trail is a platform of cross-disciplinary research project where art, design, science and filmmaking work together to dissect the rocket as an object and cast some light on its influence over the collective imaginary - from its early conception as a phenomena to its multi-layered cultural interpretation where science and myth amalgamate.

The first chapter takes place the province of Isaan in North-East Thailand. There, a gunpowder based festival takes place every summer, when hundreds of massive rockets are fired into the sky to remember Phaya Thaen, the spirit that once kidnapped the rain, in order to bring it in good quantity. This film looks at this tradition and the values for which it is still carried on, while shading some light over the very human attraction to the power of myths and faith.
