A match will be made if one client likes the scent of another and the olfactory attraction is mutual.In other words, if “Client 55” likes “Client 69” and vice versa, put a heart around it, Brain said.
Between February 2015 and January 2016 our association is implementing an international research and awareness-raising project on the domestic and dating violence against lesbians and trans women in cooperation with Brescia University, Avvocatura per i Diritti LGBT, Zagreb Pride, Bilitis, LGL, ILGA Portugal, Broken Rainbow, and Cavaria organizations. The project aims to investigate the causes and forms of domestic and dating violence; collect, compare and divulgate information regarding good practices regarding prevention, and will be followed by an awareness-raising campaign for both the target group and the general public.
Case studies, research reports, information guides, a video campaign, blog- and Twitter-posts, a photo exhibition and a summarizing international conference will all help to make violence visible and to eliminate it.
The project is funded by the Civil Justice Programme of the European Commission in the Daphne III program (to prevent and combat violence against children, young people and women).
NEW YORK – Love at first whiff is the idea behind Smell Dating, a New York matchmaking service that promises to help single people sniff out their perfect match by breathing in the odours from dirty T-shirts.
“Most normal dating services, you rely on profile pictures, assumptions that come from visual information,” Brain said.
“You either really like the smell of someone or you don't.It's much more innate.” On Wednesday, 25-year-old NYU graduate student Jesse Donaldson excitedly opened the package of white swatches in individually numbered plastic bags that had arrived at his apartment in Brooklyn. I'm just going to seal that back up.” Then he brought yet another swatch to his nostrils, nodded and said, “Oh.” He savoured a second whiff and added, “That's my match.” EWN welcomes all comments that are constructive, contribute to discussions in a meaningful manner and take stories forward.Artist Tega Brain, who teaches at New York's School for Poetic Computation, and Sam Lavigne, an editor and researcher at New York University, created Smell Dating, which they describe as an art project.Each of its first 100 clients received a T-shirt to wear for three days straight without bathing.The clients then mailed the T-shirts back to Brain and Lavigne's “Sweat Shop” at NYU, where they were cut into swatches.Smell Dating then sent batches of 10 mixed swatches back to the clients to sniff this week.
