LEVANDE ARKIVET / LIVING ARCHIVE PROJECT

LEVANDE ARKIVET / LIVING ARCHIVE PROJECT

A collection of sourdough starters and the stories behind them.

For each starter its story and a recipe is collected, along with the owners reflection on how much their starter is worth in either monetary or emotional value. Once collected, the starter is dried which keeps the sourdough lactobacilli bacteria at rest until you wake them up again to bake with.

Anyone with a sourdough starter can take part and join the network. It investigates how to use existing platforms of knowledge to create new social relationships. The project is under constant development as new forms of information and contacts are established.

"I’m currently taking a break, but I used bake bread in a stone oven, collect firewood and adjust the amount to get the perfect temperature. The sourdough plays a big part in the process. It has no monetary value. I have encountered astonishing results with this sourdough, so I consider it a real treasure that has brought joy to my life."

「現在はお休みしているけれど、パンを焼く温度にするのに、丸一日かかる石窯に薪をくべて一人でパンを焼いていたことがある。ひょんなことから、石窯をつくる人が現れ、樽材を薪にすることができパンを焼くことになった私の、これまでの物語に組み込まれた酵母です。金銭的な価値はないけれども毎回粉との組み合わせ、窯の調子により、時に驚くほど感情的なパンに出会わせてくれた、この酵母は私の人生に幸せをもたらしてくれた大切な宝物」
