As part of Urban Futures at ISEA 2018 in Durban, Cesar & Lois held a happening in which they shared food and conversations collected in neighborhoods with contrasting economic conditions.
Notably, the exhibition of the microbiological mappings and the happening were held at the Denis Hurley Center, a site where those in need are fed daily.
The shared food reflects the localities’ economic and cultural distinctions. Simultaneous to the actions, Cesar & Lois grew microbiological cultures according to the different neighborhoods’ demographics. The sharing of food mirrors that of the networking of Physarum polycephalum, a single-celled microbiological organism known for the equitable distribution of resources among individuals.
