Description

Workshop
Saturday, 18 February 2023
3.00 – 5.30pm
Venue: NTU CCA Singapore, Block 37 Malan Road, #01-04, Singapore 109452

This experimental approach to “de-anthropocentrate” design and care includes ways to “build a committed and eco-responsible ‘living together’ that includes the plant, animal and fungal kingdoms, up to the communities of bacteria in our biotopes.” Participants learn how to use biotechnology, such as fermentation, at home and show how fermentation can help reduce various problems related to health, the environment and sustainability.
The second part, Living Material: Fermentation Culture, is a hands-on social exploration of biomaterials highlighting by-products of both fermentation and tofu-making processes. Participants learn about kombucha—its production process as well as the material properties (texture, durability, colour, transparency, breathability, biodegradability and aesthetics) of the SCOBY, which can be turned into vegan leather in the kitchen at home
