Abstract: Further thoughts on fermentation as a resilient practice used by artists as upcycling of local and temporary abundances; how artsciart practitioners use aspects of fermentation as metaphor, art and bio-political sustenance.
This presentation draws on the projects initiated by Hackteria(Humus sapiens) Fo.Am(Splinterfields) and the Herbologies as well as a general survey of fermentation practices.
The paper will concentrate on situating fermentation as a metaphor, an art making technique and a transformative practice.
