The exhibition was originally co-produced by the Sensory Odyssey Studio and the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle (Paris) where it opened in October 2021. Based on an original idea by Gwenaël ALLAN, CEO and co-founder of Sensory Odyssey Studio in collaboration with Hervé BOUTTET.
The North American version of the traveling exhibition is produced and operated by Hereleb and Agorà, distributed by Dala Projects.
From the salt lakes of the savannah to the Arctic Circle, from the rainforest canopy to the depths of the earth and oceans, visitors become explorers as they embark on a larger-than-life journey through seven natural environments. Guided by their senses and curiosity, they will encounter a variety of plants, animals, bacteria, and mushroom species during this extraordinary expedition. See, hear, smell and feel nature like never before!
This one-of-a-kind exhibition presents strikingly real, high-definition video filmed in 8K resolution at different locations around the planet. Specially designed scents and sound effects take us up close and personal with the living world. Without words, the experience of rediscovering nature is all the more profound as it is based on amplifying our sensory powers of vision, hearing and smell to explore life all around us. With the interplay between scale and time, Sensory Odyssey is an embodied experience designed to unravel the beauty of our planet’s biodiversity. Teeming with colors, sounds and scents, the exhibition encourages us all to appreciate just how fragile our ecosystems are.
