On a more positive note I have acquired a new scanner (Well old scanner really) via Ebay. It is more portable so I might be able to experiment more, but I shall wait until I am on top of my assignment before I start experimenting with this further.
I also had a result from some emails I had sent a while ago and it looks like I might be able to get hold of some scented paper to print on. Unfortunately they only have lavender-scented in stock at the moment but fingers crossed they will get more of the unique scents in such at sweat, burnt toast and grass. Imagine looking at an image of green fields but also smelling the grass? Or any such image. I am thinking I could also explore the terrain of the image so it takes it beyond the flat image.
