Description
“The smells of Sterling Road come to life in vivid synesthetic technicolour on this olfactory map. A bright pick-me-up ideal for a loved one worn down by the encroaching gentrification of Toronto’s West End. Artist Proof from project commissioned by Drake Commissary 2017.”

Risograph on paper.
Unsigned artist proof, one copy.

Based on sensory-mapping tools developed by UK artist Kate McLean – Diane Borsato, JP King and Amish Morrell led a group of artists and tea-sommeliers from the Toronto Tea Guild in a walk along Sterling Road, Toronto. Together they recorded smells in a commissary kitchen, a brewery, a chocolate factory, a publisher, a government employment office, former aluminum manufacturing sites, a railpath and more – to make a portrait of a gentrifying industrial neighbourhood at a transitional moment in its development. Olfactory Map of Sterling Road is a project by Diane Borsato, designed by JP King and printed by Paper Pusher.
