The artwork comprises mycelium, growing and combining with disposable masks which emphasize a bizarre opening, creating a paradox by its both positive and negative form. The mycelium part is supported by an aluminum shelf, which is secured with hair and modern cold-weld adhesive, enabling viewers to see through it.

 

This whole work provides audiences with an open vision between the direction of mycelum matter growth and eyesights of the viewers, along with special scents of living mycelium.

 

It is a hybrid of modern industrial products and natural networking lives with its body fabrication and motivation, which is pointing to the dissolution of economic and environmental hierarchy, manifesting an elegy for continuing life in capitalist post-modernity and environmental issues.

Material:mycelium, mask, aluminum rods, wire, hair, wig
