This video was shown during Odorama. Odorama is a series of events about odor at Mediamatic, organized by Caro Verbeek. Fin de siècle expert Sander Bink was invited to give a lecture on odor in literature around the year 1900. Bink discussed a few books about well known women during that period. The books clearly describe how they were affected by the things they smelled. To accompany his lecture, I made a video inspired by the story of Eline Vere.
