A part of the Chaos Fungorium 22: Do Mushrooms Dream of Electric Humans?
The process of cultivating and working with living mycelium, various substrates and nutrients are discussed and demonstrated. Each participant creates a mycelium form that they can take home with them and observe its growth over several days as it transforms into a functional object, along with a kit of materials they may later explore.
In this workshop, artist Tosca Terán introduces participants to the fantastic potential of mycelium for collaboration at the intersection of art and science. Participants will learn how to cultivate mycelium affordably as a bio-material and turn their kitchens and closets into safe, mini-Mycelium bio-labs. Suggestions and inspirations for working with mycelium and various armatures (3D printed, hand-knit/crocheted, wood structures, etc.) will be discussed.
From industrial design, art, fashion, and architecture – the possibilities are seemingly endless!
This workshop is free to the public. However, space is limited.
