Big time sensibility
Year: 2016. Olfactory installation featuring flowers, paraffin wax, florist tape, Dior Homme (2011 reformulation for eau de toilette), Pyrex dish. The installation explores the perceived synthetic emotions derived from traditional, domestic flower preservation. Flowers were cut from their stem, preserved in paraffin wax, and randomly reattached with botanist’s tape. A thick paraffin blanket affixes the stems to the Pyrex dish. The flowers waft soft floral, powdery, and woody notes from the addition of Dior Homme.
