DataScent began as a digital afterlife project in March 2018
preserving the essence of an individual with a fragrance synthesised from online data.
It has since expanded from an occult product to a seasonal service for the living.
behaviour and the sensory power of perfume are fused via Artificial Intelligence.
We believe that between the binary 0s and 1s exists an entangled narrative essence of each individual.
Using material volatility grouping as the mode of translation for personality insights
percentage points are applied to evaporation coefficients ranging from 1 to 100.
1 to 14 (most volatile)
15 to 60
61 to 100 (least volatile)
For example if a trait is rated 10% by the AI, the trait is labeled highly volatile and a top note accordingly.
In perfume, there are standard top, middle <3, and base scents.
A long list of fragrances such as amber, blackberry, sandalwood, lemon, rose, etc. are used to create different combinations of perfumes.
The project takes Facebook and other online data and processes it with AI software created to define your digital identity.
How well does your computer know you?
How well does your favourite company know you?
How does your online behaviour define you?
Digital self, meet sensory self.
