Taste and Smell are two sensory impressions, which are represented in art in a low level.
What is good or bad taste? How do we realize smell?
What about taste in cooking, art, choosing opportunities,
… and the smell of danger, joy, flowers, the sea,…?
There is also the question about HOW to bring this kinds of unvisual experiences to digital medias?

VOS #7 presents digital artworks dealing with this ideas.
