Smell of Data Documentary on Nextnature.net

April 2nd 2017

The sense of smell helped early humans to survive. But now that our hunting and gathering has moved to the digital environment, our noses can no longer warn us against the lurking risks of the online wilderness.

We warmly welcome newly appointed fellow Leanne Wijnsma to the Next Nature Network. Her award-winning project The Smell of Data, a scent dispenser to warn Internet users from digital hazards online, was developed in partnership with NNN, and has been broadly covered by (inter)national media outlets.

Exclusively for our readers, Wijnsma made a documentary series following her search for a more instinctive Internet. We are pleased to announce the story is making its online debut on nextnature.net.

Watch the series below.
