soma:spore is a speculative scent designed for a time when mycelium have taken agency of the earth in a deeper way.
notes: yarrow meadow, blue cap mushrooms, soil, hyphae, blue chamomile
year: unmarked/unknown. blue milk cap mycelium have learned to decompose the anthropogenic waste that remains across planetary surfaces. all human timekeeping devices are unmade by their thick webs of hyphae. their fruiting bodies celebrate by dripping bright blue latex onto the earth’s skin.
30 ml / 1 oz
* soma spore comes packaged in sustainable mycelium packaging
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.
