Since the exhibit came down last week, I thought I’d post a few memories of First Friday exhibit opening night at Ursa Major Distillery for Consider Smell: Arctic Edition and some followup on responses from visitors to the gallery over the month-long display! We had a nice long line waiting for drinks before seeing the art on Friday as well as a good crowd throughout the night.
People seemed to have fun engaging with the smells we made for my photos:
We offered people a chance to respond to the exhibit and my favorite was:
senses embody everything we experience
from the feeling of fresh grass on bare feet
to warm socks on a chilly hardwood floor
your senses are everything
We asked people to circle a favorite word and this was a fun response:
My first gin and tonic was at an outdoors club in a cave-like setting in Thailand.
Warm and river were popular words–not surprising with breakup starting!
We even had a few creative reactions!
