For the attention of any New Yorkers!
looks like wholesome fun
We are writing to introduce you to *OS Fermentation*,**part of
EcoArtTech's new series of social sculptures working collaboratively
with local communities to resuscitate historic food practices and to
remediate what we call "industrial-food amnesia." We hope that you enjoy
the images of OS Fermentation's first iterations last summer and that
you might join us this Saturday, October 4, for the next OS Fermentation
Workshop in NYC at Clayton Williams Community Garden, 2-5pm, as part of
Hyperplace Harlem's Biodiversity Workshops (info below). Please click
"display images" above if you can't see our pics!
The OS Fermentation Workshop is a slow-cooking class, a healing ritual,
and a human-microbial collaboration. Here Leila leads our first OS
Fermentation Workshop at e-flux this past August. The event was part of
e-flux's Summer Mondays series and the Agency of Unrealized Projects,
curated by Amanda Parmer.
The OS Fermentation installation combines live ferments, computer
sensors, and custom software/electronics to make fermentation's subtle
revolutions of pH, oxygen, and color visible to the human eye in a
series of collectible prints--not to mention lots of taste-testing of
unique, wild-fermented alcoholic concoctions, like blueberry cacao mead,
on opening night! In June, we débuted the first iteration of the OS
Fermentation installation at Smack Mellon for the FOODshed exhibition,
curated by Amy Lipton.
