So far the mycelium experiments are growing without issue. My fingers will remain crossed that nothing contaminates the hyphae!

Re-visiting various texts, growing items for FACTT Art and Science Festival and Grow-Op at the Gladstone. Biomimicry. Mycoremediation. Radical Mycology.
Currently working out of the Ontario Science Centre (OSC) studio at MoCA Toronto. It is Day 2 of mycelium experiments here (day 3 of working in the space). These first experiments will determine if growing mycelium in this studio space is viable without Trichoderma contamination. My fingers and toes are crossed!
For FACTT Festival of Art & Science and Grow-Op at the Gladstone, I am growing myco-remediation sculptures. Containment is still being conceptualized.
Myself, Nicole Clouston, Gunes Isitan and Joel Ong proposed to form a collective with Elaine Whitaker (Alien Agency Collective, named after the MIT publication by Chris Salter). We have accepted the offer and will share the Ontario Science Centre Studio at MOCA with Dornith Doherty from March 15 – June 15, 2019.
