Mycelium Materiality

2017

Mycelium is the root structure of mushrooms and 90% of the earth's plants are connected by these microscopic thread-like filaments. Mycelium grows on cellulose and so will happily digest any cellulose-based substrate, not limited to but including cardboard, dead leaves and fabric. I grew my own material, working with these three substrates, and analysed the ease of constructing such a type of material without access to a lab or a great  understanding of the science behind the process. The outcomes were solid structures that had varying properties depending on the substrate the mycelium grew on.
