Erin LaRocque "The fruiting bodies (Time is Passing)", 2018




Ganoderma Lucidum (Reishi) mycelium and fruiting bodies grown on industrially decimated hardwood forest byproducts and red oak. These self-weaving, collaborative medicinal tapestries are personal gardens to cultivate beneficial compounds that can be consumed to improve one’s health and wellbeing, and sites to provide therapeutic “soft fascination” in an urban ecosystem. We provide resources to help each other survive, and when the tapestry completes its life cycle, its physical remains can be harvested to provide resources for human health, or reserved as an object of compassionate decor.
