Exposition

An Alphabet for the Nose. (2011)

Sissel Tolaas

About this exposition

Given that our societies have developed a language for colour, it is remarkable that we have not yet developed one for smell. Generally, when we categorize smells we only use the subjective connotations ‘like it’ or ‘don’t like it’. This is why I began to invent the first words for a language of smells, which I named NASALO. After nearly twenty years of collecting and archiving smells and dozens of artistic research projects on smell and smelling, NASALO has developed into an alphabet for the nose with its own logic and linguistic rules.
