Object with yeast print and living microbial culture, metal rotary plate.
Azimuth is a temporary sculptural object, consisting of a metal rotary plate and a living yeast culture on a lab-growing-medium. The silk screen printed yeast shows the Nazca Lines, a group of very large geoglyphs formed by depressions or shallow incisions made in the soil of the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. They were created between 500 BC and 500 AD. Their purpose is still not determined. As the yeast culture is a non-stable biological matter, the print started to grow further and decompose during the course of the exhibition.
