The artist believes that the notion of space and place are in a state of constant flux and exchange. This project investigates the various aspects of placemaking in the context of spatial design, navigation, and wayfinding. This project aims to push the envelope of traditional wayfinding and explore the possibilities of using the other senses to guide people through physical spaces. We will investigate the ways in which smell, touch and sound can be used to create unique and immersive wayfinding experiences. This project explores using scents, sounds and textures to create a unique and memorable multisensory wayfinding system that enhances user understanding and makes navigation more intuitive.
