This project uses fungus networks as a metaphor to indicate how human beings can share information and distribute resources more efficiently.
The mycelium network system among fungus is very beautiful and smart. It communicate with each other and distribute the nutritions that the plants need. Waste of resource is a huge problem human beings are facing. There is something we can learn from the fungus to better share information and distribute resource. “Mycophilia” is a project that uses serial communication between processing, Leap Motion, and arduino, to form an experience that takes the users to a journey about the beauty of the fungus network.
