As part of their permanent exhibition this year, the Eden Project has collaborated with FoAM Kernow to run a host of residencies in their Core building. Rosanna Martin has already run one week of research and is presenting her findings and sculptures in the third week of October, as part of her Disintegrated Rock residency. Katharina Hauke and Till Hovermann are the current residents until 26th of September, recording multitudes of sounds and aspects of the site for their ...and then we see if we will be friends exhibition. We will be at Eden from the 1st of October until the 14th, with Ferment!.
We are working with Sean Meaden, a microbiologist at Exeter, and Elizabeth Fortnum, an illustrator based in Falmouth. Our main goal is to give a practical, accessible and inspiring look into fermentation. We hope through sensory, scientific and creative lenses, we can help people feel more confident to try fermentation at home.
As we start to gear up properly for our time at Eden, we will be updating thoughts, resources, recipes and images to the blog. We hope to see you there!
Many thanks to Eden and FoAM, as well as the Wellcome trust, Arts Council England and the Wolfson Foundation for their support.
And to the microbes! For always being there, in scary numbers.
