Scent has the most potent capacity to evoke memories and emotions thought to be long lost, triggering involuntary reminiscence by connecting us to our subconscious memory. It is common to see people catching up over food and drinks and when one takes a whiff of this drink, the aroma diffuses into the air and makes its presence known, moving from one space into another. Dominic’s interpretation of how smell moves from one place to another, much like the flow of information, is conveyed through this interesting video installation with a rhythmic loop and seamless flow
