Foamcore, balsa, and chip are common modeling tools, but theater set designer Johanna Mårtensson looks to another medium: bread. In her lengthy ordeal – eight months preparation, six months photography – a city sculptured from bread is left alone to the forces of nature. What at first appears to be a freshly golden-brown of normal bread eventually adopts psychedelic coloration yellows, oranges, and greens from mold and who-knows-what other growths. Towers crumble into uncomfortably fuzzy piles of crumbs and gray debris. Though the moldy remains are hardly a utopia, Mårtensson poses the possibility of a regenerative Earth even past humanity’s worst acts as stewards of the planet.
