Mycelial technologist - coding & cultivating a decentralized, multispecies future.
Academic background in anthro / ethnobotany. Living in permaculture contexts on-and-off for the past four years.
Currently contributing to PeachCloud - a Pi-based Scuttlebutt hardware project.
It's a pleasure to be here and I look forward to learning beside you all.
@glyph Welcome! So do you utilize mycelium? Or do you approach tech with mycelial methodologies?
(I’m making a game whose theme is myxomycetes and historically conflated them with fungi 🕹🍄)
@rezmason Rad - your game sounds awesome! I'm looking forward to checking that out. I still know very little about myxomycetes - so much to learn!
I cultivate mycelium for use as food and medicine. Last year I experimented with mycomaterials for the first time and ended up growing several objects. This year I'll be focusing on pure mycelium materials (ie. mycoleather).
I draw on fungal behaviour & architecture to develop biomimetic insights & collapse the Nature-Culture dichotomy.
@LilyIsDead Indeed! We are lucky to be living through an explosion in humyn-fungal relations and understandings.
The fungal Queendom gave rise to Kingdom Animalia; they are our ancestors (in a very real sense) and have much to teach when it comes to living cheaply and navigating cycles of life and death.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
