Client: Science Gallery London
Location: Borough Market, London, and touring


From 2014 – 15 I worked as a curatorial consultant for Science Gallery London. One of the primary outcomes was a commission to Grizedale Arts and Karen Guthrie that resulted in The House of Ferment, a mobile unit for learning resources, workshops, talks, and a cafe, all focussed on the wonders of fermentation. Its first showing was at Borough Market and was accompanied by a week of cooking sessions and performances.

It was designered by Front Design and made by fabricators M3. It included work by Bedwyr Williams, Giles Round, Sarah Staton and Laure Provoust.
