Gravity Proof is a performance and mission to prepare and cook bread in space.
Inspired by ancient recipes and archaeological bread remains, this exploration reimagines the cosmic past, present, and future of bread. We are producing experimental methods and data to capture the materials, processes, and sensory attributes of bread as it ventures off our home planet. An ambassador of Earth, dough breathes and dances through simulated zero gravity on a parabolic flight. A story shared through texture and aroma, bread offers a glimpse into another space and time.
This multi-part work includes an experimental performance on a parabolic flight, a video, bread recipes, and space fermentation technology. Research is ongoing.
Video is on view at the Expo 2020 Dubai from October 1 - March 31, 2021.
