Multi-sensory exhibition Sensory Odyssey: Into the Heart of Our Living World will make its Asian debut at the ArtScience Museum from May 27 to Oct 29.

The exhibition features hyper-realistic, large-scale projections filmed in 8K-resolution, with 360-degree ambient soundscapes composed by Academy Award Winning Nicolas Becker and custom olfactory creations by International Flavors & Fragrances Inc.

Visitors will get to share experiences with a multitude of plants and animals from seven different ecosystems across the globe, such as swimming with a family of sperm whales or a flower sprouting from the soil.
