Olfactory perfomance.


«… In the railway station area the artist of the project "Open studios" Lisa Shtormit through science and art changes the usual city smells. As part of the project "Open studios" Lisa started working in the direction of Science Art. Together with the Laboratory of Olfactory and Chemical Research, she was engaged in the study of odor points in Moscow.  It turned out that there are more than 100 places in the capital with a disgusting and unbearable smell. In the near future, the Laboratory will publish an interactive map with the results of the study. The data will be updated every month.
