Brian Goeltzenleuchter, Sillage (MCASD Patron Demographic Profile), olfactory artwork launched at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego's Downtown Jacobs Building, 2011

We need your nose! Sillage is a participatory olfactory artwork with artist Brian Goeltzenleuchter  and the Institute of Art and Olfaction. Museum visitors are invited to share their zip code, and wear their neighborhood’s scent. Throughout the day, a collective fragrance of the Museum’s demographic will fill the space, creating a unique aroma. The result is a collective scent-scape of Greater Los Angeles.

Sillage takes place inside the exhibition Robert Swain: The Form of Color, an immersive exploration of color and its effects on perception.  

Get involved now by filling out Goeltzenleuchter’s short LA smells survey. What scents do you associate with your neighborhood? What about Venice, Chinatown, and the Valley?
