Bompas & Parr hosted three installations at the Garage Centre of Contemporary Culture which focused on generating compelling sensory experiences.
THE NEUROSTETIC NOSE
Bompas & Parr worked with a neuroscientist to pair micro-encapsulated aromas with specific colors. The micro-encapsulated scents were incorporated into corresponding paints which visitors used to depict a flocked still life. Once the paintings dried the aromas were released on touch allowing creators to smell the colour of their composition.
RUSSIAN SCRATCH'N'SNIFF CINEMA
Russian animations were re-presented by incorporating the usually neglected sense of smell into the Cinematic experience through the medium of Scratch'n'Sniff cards.
SURREALIST BISCUIT FACTORY
The surrealists took a powerful interest in food as an emotive subject to provoke, beguile and intrigue. Bompas & Parr drew inspiration from Salvador Dalís cookbook Les Dinners de Gala to build a Surrealist Biscuit Factory where food was used creatively to make edible art.
