Oh, I am way behind in writing about my new idea to repair the world (tikkun olam again).
KNEADING TO KNOW brought together ideas from two classes this past term at PSU, "World Population and Food Supply" and "Street Art class plus my recent dive into Sourdough bread baking. Being in the class gave me the push I needed. I'd been wondering whether it was too late in this life for another one.
This effort would be much more modest than This Dirt Museum and Knit One Red Worm, more doable by non-crafters that Knit a Condom Amulet. KNEADING TO KNOW is for all who eat bread, could be encouraged to make their own.
In early April, each of these professors received a plain brown paper bag with a slice of sourdough bread inside. That was the first step. Only slightly public (photo of my slipping the bag onto Hunter Shobe's lectern in "World Population" class). With excellent synchronicity, Rosemary, who gave me the sourdough starter, is speaking to him.
What occurred next speaks to art as community...stay tuned.
