bit bit is a speculative scent designed for a time when access to food is limited by pandemic-related quarantining.
notes: chard, soil, mugwort, wormwood, valerian, bitter greens
year 2021: you live in an urban center, forced to quarantine at your apartment in a high rise for the foreseeable future. the only verdancy you’re interacting with is on a screen or in the form of a bland lettuce mix that gets delivered to you every tuesday. you miss the darkness of plants, their complex dampness and astringency. bitbit fulfills that for you by gathering the power of complex and bitter plants.

agar olfactory is a project in speculative olfaction by augustine zegers. it imagines climate disaster and apocalyptic scenarios and the type of smell landscapes that would exist in such events. it collapses timespace any activating embodied intensities and inviting us to adjust our palettes as we peer into the future.
as a project, it acknowledges the layered (and currently unfolding) apocalypses of our time, including, but not limited to: the sixth mass extinction event, the colonial apocalypse of 1492, and the covid-19 pandemic.
the project offers wearable olfactory works to invite sustained engagement with quantum queer time and to allow somatic alignment with future ecological states and eras.
