Join artist Lowana Davies for Catching a Whiff and follow your nose on a walking tour through the smells of Splendour. An amalgamation of science, performance, and olfaction, Catching a Whiff will guide you through a suite of sensory surprises and delights, engaging with food vendors, plants, music, and in conversations. 
Interweaving notions and actions associated with place and pleasure, you’ll explore a series of site-specific and olfactory art interventions and gain a fresh perspective on the world around you. Through these roving interactions participants will become attuned to the sensory entanglements present at Splendour, and transcend the auditory and visual dimensions of the festival. 
Lowana Davies is an emerging artist based on the lands of the Kombumerri families of the Yugambeh language region whose work seeks to inspire a deep connection to the power of scent and to foster an appreciation for the beauty and complexity of our environment.
