impossible smells

Conceptual scent artist, Robert Blackson does just that: art that incorporates the sense of smell. His recent exhibition at the Reg Vardy Gallery in England allowed the audience to interact with fourteen moments in history using only their olfactory sense.

As part of the exhibition, Blackson has a book that accompanies the exhibit that’s a collection of scratch-and-sniff pages of smells people would otherwise never get to sense.
Partnering with chemists and a NASA scientist, the book offers people smells such as the surface of the sun, extinct plants, and the fragrance after an atomic bomb explosion.
