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.

"This sourdough was started from the oranges that had been organically grown by my friend’s father in Odawara. He started his orange farming after his retirement and I’m sure he had a lot of difficulties in the beginning. I believe that his generation of men focused on work until retirement and only then felt free to explore other things. It’s difficult to put a price on the sourdough considering all the hardships in his life and his devotion to the oranges."

「この酵母は、小田原で友人のお父様が、農薬を少なくして育てたみかんをいただいたものでつくりました。友人のお父様が定年退職して始めたミカン栽培。第2の人生、素人が栽培するにあたり、色々ご苦労があったことと思います。団塊世代の方は、退職するまできっと仕事一筋で、定年退職し

てようやく自由に好きなことができるのだと思います。その方のそれまでのご苦労とか、人生とか、その集大成になっているみかんのことを思うと、価格にすることは難しいです」
