The practice of fermentation is a key element for human survival that predates modern technology. 

Across cultures, fermentation is used to extend the shelflife of food and enhance the flavours we prize, and further refinements have resulted in some of the world's most coveted culinary delights. The process is still fairly common in Taiwanese households, with recipes passed on from one generation to the next.

Fermenting: Listen
is the research project of Chun-Liang Liu, creative director of Taiwan’s Long Distance Collective. Through food, it proposes to 'listen' to the relations between human beings and the world by focusing on a series of actions that preserve, transform and catalyse, all activities related to fermentation. 

Fermentation is a process that produces lively sounds. Observing this phenomenon, the participants of Fermenting: Listen embark on a visceral dialogue with human life, memory and time, and experience transformation, waiting and decay.
