Growing mushrooms on books requires a longterm commitment, patience and definitely the right book.
These living artifacts cross human and fungal systems, with mushrooms colonizing human knowledge in the form of books. This project asks, what might we learn from a fungal system? Through integration, new pathways become possible.
The books were carefully selected – some heirlooms of knowledge passed from mother to daughter, others tomes on designing landscapes, espousing a reordering of the natural system. Such books demand colonization; they are just asking for cultivation by nature.
