Mycorrhizal an interactive light-based installation that uses community-drawn mycelium as a symbol to illustrate how we as people are all interconnected.

Mycelium is the root structure of mushrooms. Not only does it break down and decompose organic matter, but it is also believed to have intelligence and acts as a vehicle for trees and plants to communicate throughout the forest. Specifically, mycorrhizae mycelium forms a relationship with the roots of plants and will reinvest carbon to into plants in tumultuous times.

We engaged BC residents asking them to draw one line that represents themselves as a hyphae or “root” building up to make the overall collective mycelium structure. These drawings are illuminated and projected upon the ground when the viewer stands directly underneath them. This represents the idea that there exists within every community a multitude of pathways for connection, but it requires action from an individual to enact upon them.
