In Search Of Lost Time

A work of art in the shape of a walk of scents by Sanne Vaassen

Our memories are strongly linked to scent and can bring us back to a different time and place instantly upon smelling:  a former lover, the house of your grandmother or the gym at your old school. Could we also evoke the past of a city by scent? Visual artist Sanne Vaassen designed a walk of scents through the history of the city of Maastricht. During this walk, visitors can discover parts of the city past by smelling herbs, flowers, and extracts. The detailed guide is equipped with a map and scented strips. Note: In Search Of Lost Time is only available in Dutch.
