Humanity has been colonizing nature, looking at it as a resource, that is to be exploited in a productive way to its own benefit.
Mushrooms, these seemingly simple organisms are at the same time creating a planet-wide network that circulates nutrition and information between various lifeforms.
We aim to reconnect mushrooms and people by going out to the wild and bringing back indigenous species to our urban environment.
We collect species from the forest (or emblematic areas) alongside their environmental data.
We have designed a growing space to fully integrate the mushroom life cycle in situ and bring it closer to the public. With the help of IoT sensors and open source, we can create a dialogue with the mushrooms, to emulate nature’s complex system and conditions rather than an optimised cultivation environment.
