Smells for Space

Olfactory Time Capsule for Earthly Memories

This is a set of olfactive tokens containing precious smells of Earth for future cosmonauts. Speculating on a future where some might embark on a one-way trip into space, this project investigates the sensory modalities of memory beyond the digital. In addition to terabytes of data, what other forms of communication and connection might we invent for an extraterrestrial future?
