A mushroom is a door in the floor. Open it and discover nature’s greatest revelation: an endless underground network secretly feeding life to the world above. And yet, we know more about the surface of the moon than we do about mushrooms. What if we knew more?
Using sight, sound, touch and scent, you will experience the complete life-cycle of mushrooms: spores, mycelium, fruiting body, and the inevitable decay. Working closely with the Smallhold Mushroom Farm, we have spent the last 2 years developing a unique volumetric time-lapse technology that brings the mushroom kingdom to life in a new way, never before experienced.
