Julia Barbee—fashion designer, artist, and perfumer—is raising funds to head to the 2013 edition of High Desert Test Sites, a roving art festival that travels from Joshua Tree to Albuquerque, with different projects and itineraries at each stop along the way.

Each object/location has its own scent, of course.
