One of Five Slices – Human Size Bread Man
Installation artwork based on air holes & textures research in baking processes for bread. ‘Slice 1’ is part of fives slices that create the installation and are full life size cast pieces. Originally, the work (as bread dough) was to be baked as part of the Human Energy Loaf, although this method is more suited to exhibition purposes.
‘Fives Slices – BreadMan’ will be shown at ‘Hot Seeds’ at the Discovery Centre, CSIRO in August and part of the StellrScope project – Details

Bread Man, Super-Size Loaf, Human Bread Loaf…
Is it possible to bake a human size loaf of bread? Yes……… but would it bake evenly, would the texture be right, should it be baked in two halves, is there a large enough baking tin, an oven to place it in…….
A few of the questions in researching the super-sizing and concept of a large loaf of bread. “You want it sliced” – I think that tipped the scales – not to mentioned how we would keep it fresh !
So the concept arose from the benefits of eating bread and the value to our health and digestive system and exploring this research via the Future Grains Food Futures Flagship at CSIRO.
This idea focuses on ways to link the research to the StellrScope project and an opportunity to brand the health benefits of bread during the Month of Science (August) in the Centenary of Canberra Year. Perhaps the human shape could be embossed on the side of bread during baking?
