Through the Sensorial Time Travel exhibition-idea, artist Jamillah Sungkar wants to make it imaginable what it is like to live without ‘fossil smells’.
This highly sensorial art installation based on odors: oil, gas, and tar; all smells that remind of past, dirty times, is one of the 10 finalists of the Dutch Post-Fossil City Contest – Re-imagining Urban Futures, presented by Urban Futures Studio.
Sensorial Time Travel features six rooms, that let visitors re-discover their senses to navigate and interact in the interconnected city. The approach seeks to see beyond today’s times and use former times, in which humans did not know how to make use of fossil fuels. Visitors are invited to imagine what a post-fossil city could look, feel and smell like. The installation focuses on a range of smells that represent the journey from now until the stage of a post-fossil city, in which bad odors like car gasses or tar will not exist anymore.
Sungkar’s installation will be displayed at the Post-Fossil City Exhibition in Utrecht (The Netherlands) next June 15th.
