Maggie Cardelus. sourdough starter, 2011.

Description:
Sourdough is contained a large ceramic "basket" I made to look like a hemisphere, a pregnant belly, a landscape, a spiraling umbilical cord, a galaxy. The pungent yeasty and acid smells of the sourdough suggested something primal, body-like odors, primordial seas, photo developer. The sourdough eventually dried and left a crust on the inside of the pot suggestive of the earth's crust.

Medium:
Mixed Media
