damp is a speculative scent designed for a time when soil takes over abandoned anthropogenic structures.
notes: dampness, wet soil, earth
year 3030: human extinction has allowed flora to propagate wildly, bursting through concrete and rigid architectural structures. the skin of the earth has restored itself to a microbially-dense state. soil bacteria celebrate wildly as rain showers dampen their surface. damp gives you a taste of this future; it’s a gentle whisper of a musty room in the middle of a forest, the breath of the earth as wet soil.

* damp comes packaged in sustainable mycelium packaging. this scent is composed as a single molecule that is responsible for the majority of soil's smell.
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.
