“An everlasting fragrance is a paradox.” – THEODOR W. ADORNO
“Good times equate with good smells: even cow manure smells great because it evokes such wonderful memories; conversely, bad times equate with bad smells.” – ANTONY SYNNOTT
MuDAC in Lausanne currently has an exhibition on Telling Time. It features a work by Catalan designer Martí Guixé called “Time to Eat”, which is a wall clock that tells time by emitting the smell of cooking: 9am breakfast, 1pm cooking vegetable, 10pm preparing tomato sauce, etc.
The world’s first olfactory alarm clock uses Kickstarter to generate funding for its development and marketing.
