Vibrant Cactus

  • 3d printed mycelium object

    To create the tree sculpture, we took inspiration from Cactus and the way they are shaped to protect themselves from the sun and to capture hummidity from the wind.

    We created an algorithm that mimics this behavior in order to generate shapes conductive to the growth of the mycelium.

    The shape digitally conceived reproduces the ideal climate for the growth of fungi by retaining moisture in their interstices and protecting the mycelium from air flow.

    We explore the potential of mycelium to take over theses shapes robotically built and see how it can intervene in the aesthetic composition of these artefacts.
