Nosegay (non-popular sound princess) merges anthropological, visual and design codes in a type of 'smell cinema' or TV lounge room. The project explores modes of consumerism and spectatorship, both utilising and mocking such documentary genres as 'reality TV'. Specifically, Nosegay focuses on the often neglected areas of sound and smell in relation to visual representation. Taking contemporary Japanese landscape imagery as a point of departure, Nosegay seeks to rethink current notions of ideology, popular culture and consumerism.
