An attempted approach towards cultural identity.
Field experiment no. 1
Saturday 30.09.1995, 15.20 - 16.45 gmt. / Brick Lane / Spitalfields / London
Activities of the sniffer start at Brick Lane ...
It is his task to detect scents of interest or irritation. He is equipped with plastic bags and devices in order to collect samples of particular smells. These samples are instantly labelled and their origins charted. All the sniffer's actions are documented photographically with the specific time indicated. Simultaneously the exact location of the documented moment is notified in an A to Z. The photographer intuitively responds to the sniffer's intense activity, echoing it through the quantity of shots he's taking.
