The Changing Smells

'The Changing Smells' enables one to create a personal scent souvenir, and exchange it with someone else's. The installation revives the Stasi-history with the 'Geruchsproben' in a subtle way. Upon entering the ACC Galerie you collect your own scent by wearing a piece of flannel around the neck while visiting the exhibition. When leaving the gallery, the flannel is being put anonymously into a small brown glass jar, which is then released into the 'Geruchsprobewechselmaschineanlage'.
