Future of the project

The goal is to work more in cooperation with experts in different fields of expertise. For example physics (UV-lights), biology (evolution biologists) and microbiology.

YEASTOGRAMS-Laboratory -LOGLINE

An experienced Yeast-image-artist continues working in the YEASTOGRAMS-Laboratory, where working professionally, persistently and systematically doing unique experimental artistic research. In the laboratory the deepest essence of yeast images are analyzed, wild yeast from the backyard are grown and guidance for others to enjoy the eccentric world of yeastograms are provided. With the project the artist-researcher aims to raise people’s awareness and responsibility to stop the ecological catastrophe.

Traditional fermenting

I am interested in finding different yeast species from traditional fermented foods and beverages. For example from Ombike-beverages from Namibia, made with wild fruit products. More info here.

Future things:

  1. Finish the unfinished research
  2. New spacies for exmple: Fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
    and
    Red mirrow yeast Sporobolomyces roseus
  3. How to make yeastograms -manual
  4. Research more about Yeast species and Homo sapiens and the long history together.
