I have been experimenting with mycelium (vegetative part of mushrooms) cultivating it on hemp and cotton fabric scraps. Acting like a natural glue holding the substrate together, it can be moulded into almost any shape. Once dried, Mycelium has some incredible material properties: it is lightweight, water-and fire-resistant and completely biodegradable. More to come soon..
I collaborated with Grace Pappas of the Aerocene foundation to bring Parsons Paris First Year students in my ‘Space/Materiality’ course to a workshop at Palais de Tokyo. Over three afternoons, students were introduced to the foundation’s open-source interdisciplinary exploration of environmental issues and had the chance to develop and build our project ‘Ephemeral Conditions’ in the workshop space of Tomás Saraceno’s exhibition ON AIR.
Participating students: Katarzyna Bylic, Aditi Manish Somani, Sanjana Ghosh, Araz Tapeh, Chia-Yu Hsu, Arya Savas, Maddie Hayes. Photos : Julien Mouffron-Gardner

For the final project of my Space/Materiality course at Parsons Paris I asked students to create ephemeral installations from found materials and objects.
The goal was to explore the aspect of time and to study how the materials interact with their surrounding space, as well as the role of the creator and the observer of the transitory mise-en-scène.
