Olfa is an experimental project involving a conversation between barriers and borders, a hypothesis of a designed future, choreography of a dance move, and development of a context. The object created is a glass-blown facemask and a collection of scents* that represent a range of currencies in the future. In this post-apocalyptic future world, humans have been driven underground, and we as a species have reverted back to the primal dependency on smell. It has created a tool for the governing religious body to implement a ritualistic donation currency, from one cent of white noise scent up to $1B Honey scent (the disappearance of real honey in 2043 was seen as the first sign of the approaching apocalypse a few years later).
