“We live in a human world – as far as the eye can see, we are surrounded by human objects, tools, language. They make up an ever-enhancing technosphere that is a great deal more carnal than we tend to imagine. Here we are taking the mycomorph as our example. We could consider the mycomorph as a material searching for its components. It is made when mycelium colonises other organic materials such as wood or straw. But what might a third element be that could determine the possibilities of this new material?”

During the “Active Textile” Conference and Workshops we visited the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius. The CAC is the largest venue for contemporary art in the Baltic States and featured a part of the project Psychotropic House: Zooetics Pavilion of Ballardian Technologies, organised by artists Gediminas & Nomeda Urbonas and KTU during the XII Baltic Triennial. Event on Facebook
