Flore Synthetica explores the notion of artificiality and landscape through a contradictory sensory experience. A natural environment is invoked through scent and juxtaposed with artificial flora media, creating an immersive experience. This encourages the viewer to re-imagine the relationship between the natural world and the designed world. Flore Synthetica aims to evoke memory by painting a picture with scent on the white canvas of the space.
