Mycelium as a method
By Natalya Griffin
I draw inspiration from ancient mushroom imagery, folklore, and cults that admired worshipped, and respected this mighty and magical kingdom. During my daily walks, I imagine each step being a hypha – a link that creates maps and mosaics, a network that anchors me to this world; combined with memories of the past, present events, and plans, my work is the visual mosaic – a network of roads that connect it all. Segmented plane metaphorically works as doors or windows into another world, a world created through engagement with process and inspirations. Each layer is a segment of time, a memory, or encounter I identify with.
