‘Kaiku’ or ‘Echo’ is an acoustic-olfactory instrument that performs autonomously in its own time, slowly releasing scent and sound into the space it occupies. Like a living breathing ecosystem, this machine creates its own rhythm and olfactory architecture – producing a symbiotic landscape of scent and sound.

The project is a collaboration between Amsterdam based visual artist Aaro Murphy & Helsinki based artist and herbalist Anna Karhu-Cormier, merging together their individual practices in the realms of sound and scent.
The project is supported by the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux.

Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux

The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux serves as a liaison between players in the cultural field in Finland and the Benelux countries. As an independent, non-profit organisation, the institute’s main goal is to create opportunities in which artists and organisations can elaborate new projects and new possibilities of collaboration. The institute also produces its own content and productions in close collaboration with its partner networks, often tackling current social issues. The aim is to establish long-term and sustainable cooperation between artists and other professionals, in different cultural fields, from visual and performing arts, to literature, design, cinema, and more.
