During my two months residency at AGA LAB I was experimenting with etching and embossing (blinddruk). I used these printmaking techniques to explore patterns of fungi and mycelia networks.
The mycelium can be seen - according to scientist Merlin Sheldrake - as the tissue that holds together much of the world. There are parts of these fungi networks that are easy to spot, for example, the mushrooms you come across whilst walking in the forest, yet the majority of fungi spread spores without producing mushrooms.
It appeals to my imagination that mushrooms develop above the ground whilst their mycelium, which has no fixed shape, grows below the ground.
