Probiotics of the Kitchen​:​​ Exciting Pressure Release​ ​by Leila Nadir + Cary Peppermint (EcoArtTech): A live performance/workshop featuring microbial collaboration​s,​ ​cabbages in pleasant-probiotic decay, ​explosive ​drinks by ​saccharomyces cerevisiae, and cyanobacterium vampires high on protein-rich spirulina.

Exhibition description: Emergent ecologies are being fastened into place with new rivets and cyborg articulations. Amidst collapsing systems, unruly assemblages are flourishing and proliferating in unexpected places. Microbes that become emergent diseases—by finding novel exploits, pathways of transmission, or modes of existence—can quickly transform dominant political strategies, economic systems, or agricultural practices. Emergences can also figure into collective hopes. When a forest is clear-cut by loggers or destroyed by a volcanic eruption, emergent plants are the first to sprout.
