In a pickle over preservation techniques for food, foodways, or ways of life? Follow kimchi fermentation at Pairings and archival films with Cinema Arts and delve into different strategies to safeguard today’s treasures for tomorrow.
Kimchi-Making Workshop: With Krautsource
6:30, 7:30, and 8:30 p.m. | Gallery 4 Explainer Station
Originally, Korean kimchi salted and fermented vegetables was buried in ceramic jars and left to ferment underground until it was ready for eating. Whether you bury your kimchi or not, chef and nutritionist Karen Diggs can set you on the pungent path to making your own.
Captured Images: With Kerry Laitala and Explorables
6:30 & 8:30 p.m. | Classroom 1606
Develop something new with Explorables and filmmaker Kerry Laitala: learn about two cameraless photographic techniques for fixing images to prints, including “cinegrams,” the motion picture equivalent of photograms. Then join Explorables to create your own photographic prints using found objects, transparent designs, and UV light exposure.
Pairings: Kimchi: With Maria Marco
7:00 p.m. | Fisher Bay Observatory Gallery 6
Please note: Seating and tastings for Pairings are limited to 120 ticketed guests. Pick up your free ticket in the Observatory.
What puts the sour in sauerkraut and gives kimchi its distinctive kick? The flavors and possible health benefits of fermented foods are, by definition, the result of extensive microbial growth. As part of our Pairings series on science and food, join UC Davis food scientist Maria Marco to find out how the nanoscale ecology and metabolism of microorganisms can give our food some extra zip and support the health of our guts. Then join Exploratorium chefs and scientists and sample two types of housemade kimchi and a Tom Collins cocktail with house-brined lemons.

The Internet is ever-growing and ever-changing and the Wayback Machine is recording it all for posterity. Join current Wayback Machine director Mark Graham for an inside look at advocating for an open Internet and the cultural importance of preserving information for future generations.
