Day 17: a twist

The mold this time (compared to the mold that triggered the whole mold idea for this project) is demonstrating different results. I am not seeing the deep blacks that I had seen before, and the green mold still hasn't shown. I feel that the difference is due to amount of oxygen that is being put into the bag each day when I open it, and the fact that it is not getting as compressed as was the one that was in my bag. 
The colors non-the-less are still interesting. They are just taking me on a different turn.

day 16: Discovery

I found white mold! wow, this will turn into green soon... hopefully. Along with the white color I feel like I can start to smell the mold. If that is possible? I think it smells like cheep wine? No one will smell it for me to confirm though. I wonder why?

Day 14: we have company

Totally found a moldy tomato today. I was upset at first that I had lost it and then quickly changed my opinion and found excitement in the gift that was once again given to me. 

As for the raspberries and cereal white mold was spotted on two huge clumps of cereal mutations but no red was spotted throughout the bag.

Nice! almost no more red!
I almost want to experiment with it though... Like smashing the cereal so it becomes more guncky... It will only speed up the process of what the molding is already doing.

Day 11: the fear of losing my mold bag

I went into the pantry closet to document my mold and couldn't find it where I usually keep it. It got me worried! I had stories popping in my head about the mold multiplying in the back of the closet and becoming a colony. Yes, I thought of this within the two seconds of misplacement. It was behind the sunflower seeds and honey, and apparently it doesn't smell bad according to my roommate.

Day 10: Double bagged

The paranoia of smell has gotten to me. This week has been a constant reminder that I cannot smell! and with mold, apparently, being such a smelly thing I decided it would be beneficial to double bag the mold in which it is contained. Now no worries, at the moment, of my roommates complaining about the smell in our pantry  closet.

Day 9: Chasing the UPS guy

Yes, today I chased after the UPS guy. It was way necessary! The company did not mail it on time, so for me to go after the UPS guy (after he left a note saying no one was home) had to be done. Funny really. The actual image of me after the UPS guy and then having to waive him down. YES! It is locked in my visual memory.
As for the mold... Well almost all the red is gone. Only a few reminiscence remain. More white specks though. The coming of one color to the discard of an old... or from an old?

Day 8: featuring white mold!

Ok so yes my camera is total shit! but! White specks were found today on a few squires! This is mold people! will be getting into some more exciting colors here soon. I can tell.

Day 7: RIP raspberry September 30th 2009- October 6th 2009

Black Mold! Wow
But what I don't understand is that there is no evidence that the raspberries ever excited. It is like they disintegrated. The only thing that remains of them is the red juice on the cereal. 

Sunday, October 4, 2009

An unexpected color came out of my mold today. It was PURPLE! So cool. I am sad that there is still no green, but I am way excited about the purple. 
Oh and the raspberries are all mushed. I don't understand how they got so mangled. I mean they just sit in my pantry, but yes no longer holding the form of a raspberry. This gives me an idea to how the pattern sequence will go for the weaving.

Day four and five

Okay. So sorry I was unable to post yesterdays image, but here is today's and yesterday's documentation. 
I am wow excited! I have black mold starting on the cereal and white mold on the raspberries! very faint, but none the less there!

Day three

Behold! a speck of mold! and I am only on day three... wow!

And more juice coming from the raspberries leaking onto the cereal.
