Fanny Bichet – Gassy
Diploma project with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Maddalena Casadei, Silvio Rebholz
Let us consider time as a tool. In a space-time, a series of events, phenomena and transformations take place. Consuming seasonal products means respecting the natural life cycle of agricultural products. Fermentation is a preservation process that improves the nutrients of fruits and vegetables over time while developing an umami taste. This project consists of a series of three jars for lacto-fermentation. The shape and function refers to the hourglass. In one direction, liquid and solid combine: fermentation is in progress. In the other, they are separated for easy serving. Accompanied by a booklet with ten recipes, it is used following a seasonal cycle to prolong and enhance our pleasure when consuming our favourite products.
