“Ghost Barn” by Sarah West and Christopher Field.

During this year’s Fermentation Fest, which ran from October 2 through 11, artists put up installations in the towns and fields along a 50-mile loop of Sauk County roads for a countryside in a driving tour called the Farm/Art DTour. It’s tough to do justice to the variety of these works, which used everything from microbial audio to written passages in abandoned small-town storefronts. But I threw together a short video of three of the most striking: Brenda Baker’s color-continuum laundry line, Peter Krsko’s pile of tree limbs-turned geodesic dome, and Sarah West and Christopher Field’s eerie yet charming “Ghost Barn.”
