AIX Scent Fair Kickoff Keynote and Panel

  • This is a past program

To kick off the weekend-long series of programs around AIX Scent Fair, we present a diverse group of speakers who share their knowledge of history, culture, psychology, science, and the arts to expand our understanding of how smell works – and what it might mean to smell. Keynote Speaker: Lizzie Ostrom, AKA Odette Toilette, author and scented event organizer. Panelists: Chandler Burr, journalist, author and curator of olfactory art; Dr. Avery Gilbert, psychologist and self-described smell scientist, entrepreneur, and author; and Jacquelyn Ford Morie, scientist and virtual reality innovator. Panel moderated by Saskia Wilson-Brown, founder and director, The Institute for Art and Olfaction.
