Synsthetica is an exhibition that explores the borders between the senses, focusing on smell, taste and sight through a blend of fragrances and portraits. The fragrance mixtures were concocted by 12 leading chefs, wine makers, and food writers (Erez Komarovsky, Aharoni, Shai Shevach, Amit Aaronsohn, Hila Alpert, Raz Rahav, and more) and men’s lifestyle brand Maapilim, in collaboration with photographer Haim Yosef and artist Yaarit Eliahu Tsur. First, together with Maapilim, each participant created a mixture of essential oils (which are made from trees, shrubs, roots, fruits, flowers, etc.) that reflect a childhood story, memory or fantasy. Then, the participants were photographed by food photographer Haim Yosef, in settings that expressed the story behind the smell that was created.
