Osmodrama Berlin – an olfactory journey with the Smeller 2.0

Last saturday I got the chance to visit the Osmodrama, a temporary art exhibition of the so-called „Smeller 2.0“. Located in the St. Johannes Evangelist Church in Berlin the device acts as cinema for odours, played as a smell organ. What can I say about it… at least it was a very interesting experience. Based on more than 50 different smells the visitors of the art exhibition experience a wounderous journey throught the world of smelling. But beware, there are not only pleasing odours. The range is vast and reaches from candyshop to not-so-fragrant lion house in the zoo.
And although all these things can’t be made visible by photography, the structures of the Smeller 2.0 are indeed subject for visualization.
