Bread Rock is an edible sculptural and participation art project. I used flour, water, yeast to bake bread. While it is still soft, I hand sculpture the dough to resemble a rock formation. The harden bread will be fitted into a custom wooden pedestal to resemble the ancient practice of scholar rock. I then lets the audience breaks the sculptural bread and enjoy it with olive oil accompany with wine. The partake of this bread invite the participants to see, touch, smell and taste and experience the total immersion of the senses. The entire event would also be documented on video. These Bread Rock comes in different names that derived from the materials used. Gold Mountain and Silver Mountain are coated with gold and silver powder, Green Mountain is coated with dry parsley and dusted with green tea powder and dressed with rosemary.

Ice Mountain is baked with coconut shaving and sprinkle with confectionary sugar. Condiments are also thoughtfully presented. There are goat cheese, capers, olive oil mixed with balsamic vinegar, olive oil blend with sesame seed oil and freshly grained paper with basil infused olive oil.

The act of sharing food takes into consideration the human basic nature of a social being. It includes conviviality, intimacy and building relation. All these characteristics expose the human basic need for social interaction and network building. Bread Rock is more about participation/multiple authorship, inclusion/connection, ephemeral/temporary, chaos/process/unpredictable as opposed to control/perfection/predictable, and specific instead of universal. It is also about finding moments and points where people can connect to each other, which is non-collectible, experiential, and immaterial.
