Modelling Scentscape Experience
Walking through the smellcape is a model to explore the volumetric properties of Singapore’s scentscape, previously visualised in Scentscape 06.215 Singapore.
This sculpture envisages human-centred experience of the smellscape as a dimensional form. The duration of each perceived smell was ‘measured’ by smellwalkers using a Likert scale of 1 – 7 and averaged in each neighbourhood. Additional layers of dots were added to represent increasing durations. The model takes a small section of the overall map and renders it in three dimensions.
