MYCOsystem: Cooperation between trees, fungi and humans.

From the Milan exhibitionto the picture book.

MYCOsystem was an exhibition in the Polish pavilion at the 22nd International Exposition of La Triennale di Milano. This installation represented Polish design’s response to the theme of Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival proposed by the 22nd Exposition’s curator Paola Antonelli, and focused its attention on the interconnected links between trees, fungi, and man. It considered the art of design as a collaboration between species. The immersive installation showcased trees, fungi and humans in an interconnected system that opens new horizons for design. In an era in which human beings’ connection to Nature is constantly breaking down, can we reimagine design as a collaborative relationship with other species, instead of one based on exploitation and competition?
