I am an intern at Mediamatic, working on design possibilities of a biomaterial called Mycelium. I am also a master student in Design for Interaction in TU Delft. I came to Mediamatic because I have special interests in the art of nature and biology, and want to explore the interaction of people with nature and bio-materials: how will people get closer to nature in their busy urban life through interacting with everyday objects and public installations? I also want to try to create things from nature's aspect, instead of people's needs (we are so used to user-centred design, but a lot of interesting things can appear if we go nature-centred with design).

People like our buckwheat tempeh!
In order to find out a nice taste of tempeh ware, we have been growing fungus rhizopus oryzae on different ingredients. This time we tried bulgur, buckwheat, corns and pop corns.
