Fruiting Bodies

Fruiting Bodies is an experiment in fungal sociality, exploring the possibilities of mushroom cloning, remediation and social exchange through collaborative experience and community science. The project launched with a workshop at GenSpace in Brooklyn, NY where participants created agar-based sculptures modeled from chosen body parts.
