Night Garden is an event series created at Mediamatic by Maria Bacila & Flora.
We invite 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. Learning together through playing, interactive exploration, and entertainment.
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.
