Our concept was to experience the region (South Bank, Brisbane) through a careful considered pairing of sounds and smells.
By channelling our inner sommelier, we composed a curated guide that invites the user to experience the region through an auditory and olfactory manner. By encouraging users to write their thoughts and fuse their experience with ours, a collaborated memoir is produced.
The user is to explore the region through the experience of their sounds and smells. By mapping these different spaces & creating a curated list of smells and sounds, we are providing the user with the knowledge of the public sphere, albeit in an almost poetic way.
We are encouraging an imaginary future where guidance works with the user to explore and experience the region. We are raising awareness of the natural and cultural environment through the emotional result of a curated sensory experience.
In order to aid in the exploration, a companion app has been produced. The app uses GPS tracking to locate where the users are and play a carefully curated piece of music dependant on the time of day and location. The music selections can be heard in the video below.
The app features minimal graphics as the auditory role is the primary function.
