On October 28th, 2012, Machine Project presents two sessions of the Aerobic Butter / Anaerobic Bread workshops at Noon and 2pm.
Artist Michael O’Malley opens his mobile community oven to amateur bread bakers outside the Machine Project gallery. Inside, Pop Soda’s Jimmy Fusil conducts an aerobics class/butter-making workshop, shaking jars of fresh cream… until it magically transforms into butter! Pop Soda’s Mike Wait churns fitness tunes and jock jams, including the single “Eat Your Fat”, recorded expressly for the event.
Participants will learn about the chemistry of butter and the physics of bread, and maybe even get a good workout, only to finish by enjoying fresh butter on warm bread.
While Aerobic Butter’s goal is to spread the physical delight of artisan practices, Anaerobic Bread aims to recreate the social/communal center of the village: the community oven.
