Perfume Workshop I: Gathering and Distilling

This workshop is full.

This workshop approaches the construction of scent through walking, sensing, and reflecting prompts, circulated by artist Leonora Zoninsein in advance of the workshop. The prompts provide a flexible format for beginning to think and sense classification, parse the sensory lexicon, and make ecological selections for scent re-creation. Gather primary matter for a collective distillation and subsequent olfactory installation at a discrete threshold in and around BAMPFA.

Leonora Zoninsein is a researcher, artist, and teacher completing a Ph.D. in the Geography Department at UC Berkeley. She makes custom blends and conceptual fragrances through her scent studio, NIGHT AIR.
