Odorama // Do you smell blue?

Smelling color and dancing to scents.
Explore the wondrous world of synesthesia.

Whether derived from nature, or chemically constructed, odourant molecules have the ability to profoundly effect our behaviour, emotions and associations. Tonight we will explore the wondrous world of synesthesia. A neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway (sight) leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway (smell).
