How can we use living systems as input materials in the quest for more sustainable and ecological approaches?
In this event we looked into how fungi and their structure can be used in closed-loop strategies as biodegradable materials or by growing in organic waste.
Talk by interdisciplinary artist and amateur mycologist Jessica Langley, who presented her work with mushrooms as material input in paper production and shared some of her insights into mycelial properties in a video conference call live from Colorado.
Showcase of hands.on.matter handmade mushroom paper made from locally sourced mushrooms following traditional paper making techniques.
Workshop on how to easily grow mushroom culture from mycelium spores. We used organic waste like coffee grounds, hay and wood chips as nutritional input. The participants mixed batches to take home and grow mushrooms themselves.
