cultural_capital UPDATE July 2009

Cultural_Capital is a touring artwork that accumulates bacteria and cultural capital from every venue in which it is installed.

The sour-dough is currently resting. it is being cared for by Patrick Simons in Penryn, Cornwall. It is setting off again at the end of July 2009.

Documentation is now online of the event held by Heather Lovelady and Laura Wild with the Somewhere Else community in Liverpool on 25th June, at which they distributed the starter, made bread, made lunch, told stories, made videos and took photos.
