Downwind#1 Installation at Satellite gallery April 2012
Downwind is about training ourselves to read the cyphers of change carried by offshore winds.
The smell compounds that the pods exhale are ones known to elicit specific anosmias ( loss of sense of smell) for some, and not for others. It is becoming clear that we are not all perceiving the same smells, nor the same reality. A little sugar on your tongue may possibly help amplify your sense of smell. To receive the sugar place your upturned hand on the silver dish.
