1004, Cyrano Scent Player, 2017

This is a 1004.

{
"label_number": "1004",
"title": "Cyrano Scent Player, 2017",
"description": "A small aluminum cylinder, about the size of a teacup, has vents on top. The vents emit smell. A disk inside the device diffuses a changing sequence of scents. By playing a scent \"melody\" rather than a static smell, Cyrano combats olfactory fatigue, which is the phenomenon of losing awareness of a smell over time. When we enter a new space, we quickly stop noticing the odor of flowers, pets, or cooking. New odors catch our attention. Cyrano is created by oNotes.",
"instructions": "Come close to the cylinder to experience the smell.",
