Scope is a series of drawings whose starting point are microscopic images of bread yeast, and are based on the extraordinary capacity of these fungi and their ability to invert scale. Bread yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, or baker’s yeast, is a type of one-celled fungi, which is reproduced by a process called budding. Bread yeast causes bread to rise by releasing carbon dioxide, which gets trapped in the dough. This microscopic yeast has a macroscopic effect on bread dough.
