Night Garden is an event series conceptualized and produced by Flora, organized at Mediamatic in Amsterdam over a span of 3 months.
The main idea of these event series was to foster a better understanding and establish communication between people and (indoor) plants. Learning together through audio, interactive exploration, and entertainment, while incorporating scent as a comman thread to invoke emotions in those participating.
Inviting people to share their unique plant-relatejourneys. A parallel universe accompanied by dreamy DJ sets and botanical dancing to keep your winter hearts warm.
Using the series, Mediamatic will foster a better understanding and establish communication between people and indoor plants.
On some occasions Flora performed as an olfaction DJ. Working together with different musicians or DJ’s to find the ‘right’ scents that would fit the sounds.
And here, she diffused scents designed for every different scene of the documentary Life That Glows.
How to translate the untranslatable?
For this work, Flora worked with 7 (anonymous) people of different backgrounds to create scents, concerning their cultural ‘version’ of the Dutch word ‘Gezellig’. Then she created a procedure on how the scents would be perceived.
