Osmobox

Eduardo Kac is internationally recognized for his telepresence and bio art. Osmobox drawings were exhibited at Galerie Charlot in Paris (2014). Osmoboxes are visually identical but completely distinct in their olfactory identity. Every scent in the Osmobox series is unique and constitutes the core of the artwork. Moreover, Eduardo Kac serves on the editorial board of the journal. In 2011, Eduardo Kac published Aromapoetry, an artist’s book including twelve custom-made aromas.

Eduardo Kac also participated in the poetry and scent exhibition Volatile! in Chicago.

An Osmobox is a “work of olfactory art that responds to the presence of the viewer by opening itself and gently releasing an aroma.

All Osmoboxes are visually identical but completely distinct in their olfactory identity. This means that the viewer is unable to differentiate them through vision alone and is, therefore, stimulated to explore each artwork primarily through the sense of smell”.
