Sensorial agents Umwelt Collective (Lowana Davies and Merinda Davies) invite you to be enveloped in an intimate audio- visual, olfactory experience that takes you out of the digital ether and lands you back in your body. Drawing on shared childhood memories of finding identities and boundaries through the natural environment, ‘Mother’ asks us to find ways to communicate with place. Set 100 years from today, Umwelt Collective imagines a world that has been suspended, allowing the earth time to heal without human intervention. In this world sensorial agents are trained in interspecies empathy, communication and sensing techniques.  Engage with ‘Mother’ by downloading the ‘Sensorial Agent Field Guide’, receiving a scent in the mail made from this place and leaving a message with m0ther on the phone.
