‘Scentient Beings’ invents a new science of aroma delivery focusing on smell and the impact it has on health and wellbeing. It explores the concept of Re-cabling Fashion, by implanting smell technology into multi-sensorial clothing. The project promotes wellness by boosting therapeutic qualities concentrating on a more active approach to fashion design, introducing the living dress as a sensitive Smart Second Skin.
The Smart Second Skin dress allows the wearer to enter a sixth dimension by creating a rainbow symphony of abstract aromas. This makes us more aware of our own smell sensory universe, which has the capacity to expand our sensory repertoire towards the sixth sense.
The wearer could deliver a spray of magic wellness molecules to create their own personal ‘smell bubble’. As a ‘Scentient Beings’ we respond better to our chosen scent, the smell that works with us in our ‘aroma rainbow’. The dress helps you to listen to your body by using the sense of smell. It provides aroma molecules for the right moment for the right effect, triggers new emotions and enhances the intimate contact with other living things. We develop a new hypersensitivity, learn new and stimulating pleasures and recreate lost memories. The dress paves the way to an expanded life, making the most of what are senses have to offer and to help us enjoy the experience of sensing reality.
