About the lead composter: Tessa Zettel is currently in residence at not-just-artist-run space Frontyard, sewing together 100 copies of the artist book ‘Making Time: An illustrated Compendium of Notes on Preserving Food + Futures in an Age of Unsettlement’ (2017) with co-author Susie Nelson. Mapping an ongoing practice of speculative fermentation, the book picks up on Haraway’s adaptive concept of SF as ‘the patterning of possible worlds and possible times, material-semiotic worlds, gone, here and yet-to-come’. Haraway’s SF is also ‘practice and process … becoming-with each other in surprising relays’, much like the alchemic business of food preservation, involving countless organisms in relation, responsive operations and transformative ingestions.

“A rare, candid, intellectual portrait of a highly original thinker; Haraway is a gifted storyteller who paints a rebellious and hopeful universe teeming with critters and trans species in an era of disasters.”—Concreta Journal
