Sense of smell
BY WANDER EIKELBOOM
@ VOL 11
ON SEP 23, 2014
Smell is not just about what you feel is disgusting or nice. Smell forcefully sends a signal that immediately clears a way to our emotions and memories. Is it not strange that scent is only -applied sporadically in media & communication design?
Together with CMD Breda students and teachers Wander Eikelboom researched the current and future possibilities of scent in media- and communication design. These range from revolutionary thought-experiments to products and services that we could implement.

The Fragrant City
BY TANJA SCHELL
@ VOL 29
ON FEB 29, 2016
“Smell gives us a sense of place. Our nose is our built in navigator and every city is filled with smell scapes.”
In The Fragrant City from PechaKucha Night Maastrict Volume 29, Speaker Tanja Schell shows how powerful one of our most ignored senses is. We live in a world of scents. And we are influenced by them 24/7. All those scents influence our mood and our wellbeing, all of them. Even those we are not aware of. Scent is a hidden but powerful dimension which adds a strong sense of place to the urban space, it makes cities more attractive and more safe. After ages of reducing and controlling odour emissions in the city, time has come to develop a positive policy to use this invisible power.

Obscene and Indecent Materials: The Health Benefits of Reading and Defending Banned Books
BY ZAC THRIFFILEY
@ VOL 8
ON APR 06, 2018
Zac Thriffiley has made an only slightly lucrative career out of reading the books that others have told him not to read. Born and raised in New Orleans, his aunt was shocked to find him reading Moby-Dick in the middle of Barnes and Noble at the impressionable age of five, and she promptly replaced it with the more age-appropriate title, Green Eggs and Ham. When he was nine years old, his father scolded him for saying the word “bastard” out loud while reading A Separate Peace, and his mother nearly fainted when he brought a copy of Lady Chatterley’s Lover into their home (his grandmother had nearly gotten expelled for reading the same book at school fifty years earlier). Such books taught him dangerous lessons, such as how to swear effectively, overthrow dystopian totalitarian governments, and treat everyone with kindness and respect.
