The sense of smell is a layer of magic in our tangible reality. It works in peculiar ways, many not yet justified. Like magic, it is elusive but the impact it imparts transcends the sum of its parts. In theory, the scents we smell are thresholds between what is understood to be real and the imaginary. Similar to the chaos theory, something as subtle as scent can ultimately impact our emotional and physical state in ways our senses fail to.

This thesis explores the mysteriously intangible yet incomparable qualities of scent in an attempt to create interactive spatial experiences that inspire a sense of discovery.
