Thanks to the increasing omnipresence of olfaction, this thematic issue brings together different processes or techniques to highlight the importance of smell across a wide range of traditions, disciplines and worldviews. Whether it’s olfaction as matter and material, as experiential event, as extension of nature, or the sense of smell as affirmation of individuality, as memory and embodied knowledge, the texts in this dossier take into consideration the ongoing exploration of effluence as artistic impulse. They give an account of otherwise marginalized experiences and forms of knowledge, in which exhalation becomes a vehicle for communicating a plurality of voices, identities and realities.
