A Poetry Olfaction is a series of durational artworks which intertwine the power of poetry with the sense of smell; the reader uses the poem to reflect upon the scent at specific stages of its evaporation. Lets call it grass, pictured above, is the first "olfacto-poem" in a serial collaboration between olfactory artist, Brian Goeltzenleuchter and writer, Anna van Suchtelen.
