COLLECTIVE BREAD DIARIES: A TASTE OF PROTEST

ART SCI CENTER + LAB

April 5, 2018, 5:00 pm   » 

Drawing on the commonly unnoticed value of bread, and the everlasting impregnable imprint it has always had on revolutions throughout history, Collective Bread Diaries: A Taste of Protest is an interactive art project in which participants are granted the opportunity to draw and share their personal visual representations of bread, eventually forming an array of visual diaries, each peculiar to its creator. The results are exceptionally reproduced by a machine, which although possesses no threads to culture, tradition, or history, emphasizes the conscious perception of one’s distinct identity.
