What does history smell like?
History is, literally, the pursuit of knowledge in the discipline of everything. To explore history is to seek wisdom and understanding about how we got to the present by delving into the inquiry of past social, cultural, economic, scientific discovery, natural occurrences and events that mark the passing times of civilization.
Though “tribal knowledge” (that which is passed down by word of mouth, from generation to generation, through narratives, language, documentation, stories, and legends) provides witness to our heritage, it does not recreate the physical landscape that signifies a period in time. What we remember, how we access, share, and preserve those memories help provide a window to how we connect with our ever-changing world.
Historic and cultural museums have traditionally housed memorabilia and masterpieces to showcase milestones from bygone eras. However, today’s institutions offer much more than the preservation of artifacts and a glimpse of the past. Modern museums have become destination experiences for guests to immerse themselves in a past, present, or future experience that allows them to dream in the moment to envision a different time or place.
What we do? Be authentic
Recreating history is a careful collaboration of curation, planning, detail, technology, environmental design and atmospherics that create an authentic, yet engaging, historical setting. Senses are engaged. Curiosity ignited. All in the pursuit of knowledge and to attract audiences. Creating a fascinating experience begins with an atmosphere that reaches out to envelope visitors.
SensoryCo scenting systems and atmospheric effects for museums integrate to custom designed interactive exhibits to revolutionize access and retention of historical and cultural information. SensoryCo’s products and services include design, and production of scents, weather effects, and smoke effects that assist in re-creating scenes and environments or to express complicated concepts by tangible means. SensoryCo moves past auditory and presentations to leave a lasting impression.
What stirs a memory? Be unforgettable.
Museum curators and educators serve as experts in their field and are a trusted resource for sharing the stories that have cultivated the world around us. Museums now have taken on the task of conserving and communicating concepts that appeal to tech savvy crowds seeking experiences that stand out.
Entering a space that has been staged to represent a specific time-frame becomes authentically unforgettable with the insertion of vivid atmospherics and smells. Musty, ancient smells may permeate from the presence of a royal tomb while a faint perfume may evoke memories of the past to grab a person’s attention and/or take them to a place from within their memories.
Attention and memory have a close symbiotic relationship; memory is completely reliant on the intensity of attention, and attention requires enough memory to make sense of your surroundings. Passive activities or limited observations are not as effective as interactive exhibits.
SensoryCo specialize in enhancing environments to transcend the definition of “experiential,” commanding more focused levels of attention. The more interactive and immersive the experience, the more focused the delivery of the message. Using SensoryCo atmospheric effects, scenting systems take guests on an unforgettable sensory journey and makes the pursuit of knowledge contagious.
Go beyond the expected and utilize scenting systems, spritzers, weather effects, smoke and fog effects in your 4D theater to give audiences a truly tangible, and profoundly experiential discovery.
