Building With Mycelium

with Arne Hendriks

Pigeon towers used to exist everywhere to produce extra fertiliser needed to support growing populations. When artificial fertiliser was discovered most towers became neglected, as did their inhabitants. We want to change that. We build our towers with living waste mycelium from the oyster mushroom agri-industry. It takes a bit of practise and a bit of experience. During the workshop we want to share what we've learned, and talk about some of the reasoning behind bringing these iconic living structures back into the cityscape as homes for our fellow flighted friends.
Please join artists Arne Hendriks and Aya Kone as they explain some of the practical and not so practical aspects of working with living matter for a living environment.
