MY:CELIUM SYSTEMS

'After liking a mushroom without reading the Terms and Conditions, Prototype •G embarks on a journey through MyCelium Systems in order to re:connect with her Lost Heart.'

MyCelium Systems addresses forms of communication found in the natural world through a symbiotic relationship with fungi. Autonomous sySTEMs and sentient networks found in nature that mirror technological processes and routines = data x [♡]. This piece played with the notion of togetherness, non-somatic touch and post-human links. Utilizing the soil as a means of innovation for our own systems and governance. Ectomycorrhizal fungi form mutualistic relationships that nurture their entire ecosystems. Unseen parallels and transmissions of C.A.R.E that mutate and spread.
