Mycelium is ecological connective tissue, the living seam by which much of the world is stitched into relation. 

— Merlin Sheldrake 

House of Mycelium is a multisensory installation dedicated to cultivating fungal relationships. As humanity faces the triple threat of climate change, biodiversity loss, and ecological collapse, [name redacted for blind review]’ piece seeks to reopen our imaginations to the possibility of mycelial ways of thinking and caring for one another on a damaged planet. The installation enacts a future imagined by participants during the first workshop, where political care for all species was guided by mycelium. Therefore, working with Reishi [31] (to create sculptures) – the mushroom of divine immortality, as co-creators and collaborators, she seeks to engage the senses and critical sensibilities in an intimate conversation with fungi.​​​​​​​
