A dreamlike short film of a dog searching for a missing body in a forest, shot in infrared. It is inspired by one of the practical applications of the scent of death research - to facilitate the training of cadaver dogs.
The Search is part of a multisensory installation, entitled Thanatos, which centres on an eponymous original perfume that evokes the scent of death.
