Bread reflects the uneasiness of our time. In most cultures bread has significance beyond mere nutrition. Bread is the iconic image for both poverty and wealth. I’ve been thinking about bread and its enduring symbolism, since last year as the economy teetered on the edge of collapse and the talk of worldwide depression filled the media. As the memory of Depression era breadlines became relevant, I began casting oversize loaves of breads. The breads are stacked up to form a tower. Inside the tower is a projection of bread dough rising accompanied by the sound of bread being kneaded.
