The Psilocybe cubensis is a mushroom that is relatively easy to grow. During this workshop, we will make a substrate for the mushrooms to grow on, following the famous PF Tek (Psilocybe Fanaticus Technique). This substrate will be infected with spores in our Cleanroom. The Cleanroom is a sterile space, that prevents other spores and bacteria to contaminate the substrate. Participants can take the infected substrate home, where it will turn into mycelium and eventually in mushrooms, after 2 to 4 weeks. You will receive a handout that explains exactly what to do with the substrate at home.
Why we work with fungi
Fungi are organisms that have an enormous cultural potential that we are only just starting to discover. Some people even claim that they will save the world. For Mediamatic fungi are a source of new materials that can replace many synthetics in the 21st century. They play an important role in our food systems as well as having great symbolical value. That why we like to work with them on many levels.
