We increasingly use digital technology to augment our senses, but we rarely realize that some of them are excluded from the process. The sense of smell is one of those senses, that's why experience designer Leanne Wijnsma developed The Smell of Data, a scent dispenser to warn us from hazardous websites. On April 19 at 20:00, Wijnsma will presents the project during Odorama: Icons of Smell, a night full of multi-sensory experiences at Mediamatic in Amsterdam. With professors Ep Köster and Charles Spence, the panel will explain everything about the impact of scents on our consciousness and behavior.

Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
