Stills from Orbital Shakes of turkeys and Toulouse goose investigating SCOBY before eating
Orbital Shakes is a short video that features turkeys eating SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacterial Yeast). The video takes special attention to the fleshiness of the turkey's wattles in relation to that of the ripping, jiggling SCOBY. It also captures other birds interaction with the bacterial yeast such as the pictured Toulouse goose that liked to step in it. Filmed at the Bird Gardens of Scotland, the background noise captures the passing traffic of the adjacent highway.
Thanks to Gerard Ortín Castellví for camera work.
Orbital Shakes was shown at my solo exhibition 'Residual Yeast' which happened at Gossamer Fog in 2022. It was written about in Art Monthly and Flash Art, and was critics pick in Art Forum. It was also exhibited with The Fairest in their exhibition 'Falling Off the Face of the Earth' at Trauma Bar Und Kino in Berlin in 2023.
