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.

"Sourdough or natural yeasts tell something unique about a certain place at a certain time. Much like the scientists who dig up 10.000 year old snow in Greenland and from the sample can read how the climate was. e sourdough in this glass will say something about the climate, environment and bacteria in Kamakura June 2014. In that sense, all sourdoughs are unique and of high cultural value."

「サワードウや天然酵母は、ある時点で特定な場所のユニークさを伝える。グリーンランドの 10000 年前から積もる雪を掘り起こし、採取したサンプルから当時の気候を推測する科学者の様に、瓶に入ったサワードウは 2014年6月、鎌倉の気候、環境や酵母菌について語る。そういったことから、全てのサワードウはユニークで、高い文化的価値があると言えるだろう」
