Abstrakti

Mycelium is seen in the field of design as a potential future material in various applications. This is due to its attractive properties: mycelium is easy to grow and can feed itself with any waste material, it is also fire resistant, detoxifying, grows into any shape and is incredible strong.

During the Bio Materiality course students harvested, cultivated, grew and designed with fungi. Furthermore, the students asked critical questions such as what are my responsibilities when working with a living organism? What if the food was packed in a biodegradable container enhancing its original flavour? Could the package be an edible condiment itself?
