Dessine moi un arc-en-ciel

Dessine moi un arc-en-ciel is an olfactory installation by Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos at the Museum Louis Braille in France that explores the concept of color beyond its visual dimension. The artist worked with seven visually impaired people and a perfume expert to create a scent for each of the seven colors of the rainbow. The title refers to the famous phrase repeated over and over by the little Prince in the book of Saint Exupéry, “please…draw me a sheep”. Like the narrator in the Little Prince, Dessine moi un arc-en-ciel (Draw me a rainbow) proposes to put the colors inside “imaginary boxes” so that each viewers imagination, freed from any visual limitations, can get closer to theirs essence.
