2013, polyurethan resin and graphite

The term "occurrence" is to be taken in the sense of a recurring presence, that of a blind olfactory mask but always transformed. Occurrence 1 is zoomorphic in appearance, which may be reminiscent of a bird or a curculionid. Occurrence 3 is distinguished by two divergent rostrums to test a hypothetical stereoscopic dimension of smell. The nasal protuberance of Occurrence 4 takes a particularly large shape, quite close to that of a radar antenna. For another Occurrence, the length of the nose exceeding the meter allows a remote use of the sense of smell.
