Feel free to ask questions, make references and drop-by as often as you like.

MFA Design Criticism, Thesis Research

Odor is currently an untapped medium of utterance, that while present in all design, is only just being actively engaged by designers as a product of and form of design practice to express value, capture moments, define identity, alert us to danger, stimulate desire and enliven environments.
