COMPUTER'S DON'T EAT SUGAR TO MAKE MORE COMPUTERS
Tower, a sculpture derived of 600 samples of SCOBY that exceeded my own body weight
Computers Don't Eat Sugar to Make More Computers consisted of growing 600 samples of SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacterial Yeast). The opportunity was used to attempt two things: the first was to try and understand what ratio and condition produce SCOBY the fastest. The second was to try and replicate my weight between the samples. In the end, I grew about 90,000 grams of bacteria which is 166% of my own weight.
The installation period ended in filling a 3-meter tall tank with the samples, creating the sculpture Tower.
Computers Don't Eat Sugar to Make More Computers was an installation made possible by the art space Shoreline and the Goldsmiths Friends and Alumni Fund. Tower was shown with Deptford X at the Old Police Station with Enclave.
