Photo documentation of a process.
Cucumbers, spices, salt, may contain traces of bodily fluid.

I use my body as an ingredient in a tub of pickles and join the traditional process of lacto-fermentation. Often told that “I’m not getting any younger”, I decide to preserve a moment of youth (prescribed desirability) and join the cucumbers in their existential quest to live for ever. Ironically, society views pickles and women similarly; both exist to be consumed.
