In her solo presentation, Stefani Glauber explores a possible future in which scent is almost completely digitized. Scents can be registered by sensors and thus identified systematically. In reference to the religious ceremonial of burning incense, Glauber presents a scent that places the person carrying it into the social centre: in the absence of illness, old age and poverty, into the most hierarchical position within social power structures. The resulting scent is simultaneously a mask, a protective shield, with which the wearer can position themselves away from the social periphery. An olfactory filter, a product of the future.
