"Our Environments Ourselves"

My research-creation project focuses on waste as a phenomenon that can teach us about our human connection with the material world.

Investigating the development of Bio-Material using the natural growth process of mushrooms called Mycelium, I am working on developing art installations that can fit the size of the human body and that are entirely made out of Mycelium. The goal is to create an environment that can demonstrate and advocate for new building materials, that can replace our current access use of plastic and also restore damaged places, such as landfills.
