Whether derived from nature, or chemically constructed, odourant molecules have the ability to profoundly effect our behaviour, emotions and associations. Tonight we will explore the wondrous world of synesthesia. A neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway (sight) leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway (smell).
Smelling color and dancing to scents.
Explore the wondrous world of synesthesia.
