Stop And Smell The…Grass?
Los Angeles based artist Mattia Casalegno has designed a wearable sensory device titled “The Open” that forces you to smell fresh cut grass while listening to your own breath. As it states on his site…
“The work plays with the Deleuzian notion of “ritornell” (refrain), and about the quality of sound to define a territory. The space defined by the sound of breathing is in a state of costant imbalance between the physical act and its sensory perception and traces an unstable relationship with the intimate environment the garment reproduces.”
I for one…would love to have a go of it. I love the smell of fresh cut grass, and with the winter at our heels, the idea sounds just right. 🙂
