StrataSpore used mushrooms as both metaphor and material to discuss infrastructure, networks, and latent potential. The process cultivated “spores” of knowledge about local ecosystems and urban sustainability. The collaborators combined elements of task and performance-based art, experiential learning, cooking, mushroom hunting and identification, and experimental design practice.
