Mediamatic’s Black Barn has a beautiful wooden construction, but is currently not protected from the cold winter weather. Therefore we are setting up a process to insulate the roof with Mycelium insulation panels. Both the production and insulation process will be open for the public. To see when we begin this process, keep an eye out on our calendar.
Myco Design Lab
Officina Copuscoli, University of Utrecht and Mediamatic are currently collaborating in a 2 year program, where we invite other artists to investigate the potential of mycelium for the development of new bio-materials. You can follow the participants of this Myco Design Lab, Aniela Hoitink, Kristel Cojak, Caroline de Roy, Marieke Broertjes and Rosalie Bak, here. This project is supported by NWO.
We feel that everyone should experience the potential of fungus. Therefore we offer beginner and advanced mushroom cultivation workshops, for artists, designers, farmers and anyone else who is interested in growing their own culture. Are you eager to learn how to grow oyster mushrooms, or want to gain a better understanding of working in a lab? Sign up here.
