For NAH_R19: Grasses & pastures, imagining a regenerative economy of cheese
A work embedded in milk culture(s), diversity, flora, and simple human action.
Been collecting milk from the valley, and turning it into cheeses, directly in the studio, with the help of various ancient milk cultures. Those cheeses were infused with the flora of the region. They contained flowers and vegetal extracts collected in the Val Taleggio.
At the end of the residency period, those edible artifacts were displayed as a performative installation, along with some home-cultured breads. They were tasted and shared with the community, so milk, flowers and bacterias could infuse within the people.
Always the world (cheesy title purposingly designed so) also is an essay and experimental trans-disciplinary publication about food, pastoralism, eating flowers and agency. You can download a digital reading version here, and watch a little video about it here.
