Scent Constellation is a dynamic, spatial, multi sensorial art piece that simultaneously represents a perfumer’s organ and the process of creating a scent. Five perfume typologies are characterised; Eau de Cologne, Oriental, Fougères, Floral, and Chypre, each type is interpreted by a moving constellation of light in a mesmerising cloud between the prismatic nodes. The formulaic relationship between the perfumer’s assistant, the perfumer and up to 200 raw ingredients are represented by a web of crisp lines of light and a corresponding soundscape. The generative light and sound symphony creates a poetic visual metaphor for the process of imagining new perfumes. An algorithm generates a network of traced lines of light, to create crystalline-like facets, that represent the mathematical relationships between ingredients. The soundscape is created from a library of sounds developed in response to the scent families.
