design and art in both

The possibilities of mushrooms are endless. Neither plant nor animal, they are forming their own species. The certain characteristics of Fungi can be utilized to create a sustainable material, and furthermore establish a symbiotic relationship by understanding their influence on every living organism.

What is our relation to mushrooms? Often condemned, mushrooms are essential for the function of our planet. Deeply connected to plants by Mycorrhiza, their symbiotic affinity and necessity to our body is yet to be scientifically explained

My experiments and setups are still in evaluation process, but I am aiming for a comprehensive guide for architects, designer, artists and fungi enthusiasts, about how fungi can be utilized, showcased by different projects and experiments.
