I’m thrilled to share the launch of my book “Nose Dive”! The book is available for shipping on August 4. I will also having an informal talk, where I will have the books at Fumerie in Portland, Oregon on August 10, 2019. Please RSVP to the event if you would like to join. I look forward to your throughts on the book, and starting a new dialogue on scent, olfaction and art.
From the back cover: “Adventures for your nose in art, anthropology, and science, the book Nose Dive is a broad introduction to olfactory culture meant for artists or anyone curious about the power of scent. Something is in the air with respect to our most powerful and least regarded sense. This book demystifies the world of scent, provides springboards for further study, and presents exercises for shifting gears with your nose. A must-read for anyone intrigued by the superpower right under our noses.”

Conceptual artist and author Catherine Haley Epstein will present her new book Nose Dive: A Book for the Curious Seeking Potential Through Their Noses. The book is an invitation to play in the landscape of the olfactory, to reconsider our sense of smell, and to demystify the lines between art and scent. As part of her presentation, she will share the four fragrances she created for the On Forgetting art exhibit that launched her foray into olfactory research and work.
