Smell of Space

Last year I developed a participatory narrative series Celestial Cluster. In these works I made the Milky Way with groups of people.

To enhance the piece I developed 'The Smell of Space'. It is the space smell as recollected by NASA astronauts within their various memoirs. I took the common denominator smells that they reported and put them together.

So far there are five versions of 'The Smell of Space'. The original version is as close to the astronauts descriptions as I could make it.

So what does it smell like?… It's probably best smelt first hand.
