Smell of Data Documentary on Nextnature.net
The sense of smell helped early humans to survive. But now that our hunting and gathering has moved to the digital environment, our noses can no longer warn us against the lurking risks of the online wilderness. For this reason Dutch experience designer Leanne Wijnsma developed a scent dispenser to notify us of the unscented danger of our digital landscape: data. As part of the research, Wijnsma made a documentary that follows her search for a more instinctive Internet. We are pleased to announce the story is making its online debut on nextnature.net. Watch the series here.
