MOSSFLOWER is a small press focused on the process and labor of making rather than the final product alone. Volume 1 brings these ideas together around cooking, food and food-adjacent topics, artistic practice, and cultural labor. Through archives, studio soups, failures, and spillage often occurring in isolation, this project aims to share three seasonal issues, with one leftover to rest.
What is the relationship between value and residue? Does residue always contaminate, or can it morph? Is morphing always good? How can residue become positive potential? What do you do with the leftovers? Do they seep back into the groundwater? These artists and writers were asked to articulate different understandings of parts to wholes, of ratios, and remains.
