Smell sculpture

The story of Noah's Ark recurs across cultures, languages, geography and time. In the early seventeenth century the natural philosopher John Wilkins attempted to comprehensively archive the animals that boarded the Ark. Working with chemists from Imperial College and perfumer Ricardo Moya, in 'Excrementum' Maciá created a scent from the excrement of the animals on Wilkins’s list.
