Downwind 2013 Raewyn Turner & Brian Harris

May 2013 we made the full Downwind. The installation is composed of twenty pods that sense human presence and respond by breathing smells on the audience.

Exhibited at  ISEA2013 public program Resistance is Futile: Curatorial Theme: : Ecologies and Technologies, Sydney.

Sugar Dispenser

Alongside the pods are devices that dispense grains of sugar. Sweetness has been suggested to assist perception of smells by amplifying the olfactory sense.
