The Sniffer

This "imaginary device" is a scent-based resource detector, which helps people find food and other scarce items during times of crisis.

This is a scent-based resource detector, which helps people find food and other scarce items during times of crisis. Using The Sniffer as a performance prop, I videotaped and edited a vignette where I found a ready-to-eat meal (MRE), which I then opened and actually ate. I scavenged all materials for this sculpture and performance during my residency at Recology San Francisco.
