For Arpa scent Ferragus, Marcin Rusak created an edition of 3D-printed “scent-bearing” sculptures, digitally modeled from morphed 17th-century architectural motifs. Printed in translucent biodegradable thermoplastics, then metalized in zinc, each scent-bearing sculpture comes encased in an individual PLA mold. Add drops of Arpa scent to both sculpture and mold for diffusion.
For Arpa scent Recedere, Anicka Yi designed a hybrid species of resin object – part undersea anemone, part fungal fruiting body – that engage Yi’s pioneering aesthetics of “technosensualism”. Augment interior environments with these novel lifeforms, at once machinic and organic.
