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.

"Media only provides us with information on how to choose what is best for you. People often say that to make a sourdough takes too long, or that it’s very difficult to take care of, but that criticism derives from being compared to bread that you can buy. My homemade sourdough bread tastes very different from store bought bread. Next year, I plan to cultivate my own wheat plant, which is easy to grow, and to make a new sourdough from it. I bake bread on

weekends, thinking about things like this."

「メディアからは『いかにより良いものを選択するべきか』に関する情報、すなわちお金を払わなければ手にすることができない『商品』のことしか流れてきません。天然酵母は発酵に時間がかかるとか管理が難しいといわれてますが、それは商品と比較するからです。この酵母からできる我が家のパンは商品とは違う美味しさがあります。来年は小麦の栽培からやろうと思っています。農作物という商品ではなく、小麦という植物を育てるのは、実は簡単です。そんなことを考えながら、週末にパンを焼いています」
