One Tree ID condenses the identity of a specific tree into a complex perfume that can be experienced by human visitors in order to apprehend the tree’s communication system at a biochemical level. By applying it, a person can invisibly wear not just characteristics of the tree he/she is standing next to, but also use parts of its communication system and potentially have a conversation that – although invisible and inaudible by nature – might still take place on the biochemical level plants use for information exchange.
The artist aims at creating empathy and suggests an exploration of how to question the way we use our senses to generate new connections and interactions between species. Like humans, trees and plants also have their individual odour. One Tree ID’s perfumes offer alternative ways of information exchange with the plant kingdom upon which humankind depends.
