Human Diffuser
Sensory Performance

'Human Diffuser' is a performance piece that transformed the Embankment tunnel into an aromatic sanctuary for working professionals on their commute. It was observed that the tunnel passersby seemed drained and lethargic in the space.

The project aims to alleviate the clinical atmosphere of the tunnel (and all its restrictions) through the incorporation of a non-intrusive, transient sense that the public can interact with. The performance incorporates both aromatic and visual references to lavenders as a therapeutic scent, with the intention to briefly transport the commuters away from the stresses experienced in a megacity.
