Bio Art

This artistic project investigates the morphology of fungi and genesis of geometries on living and growing membranes and ultimately how images can be generated by natural processes.

Fungi are being cultivated. Young fruiting bodies are carefully tattooed with basic geometries. A tattoo machine as used for human skin is the tool. Mushrooms are tattooed when they are still small. While the fruiting body is growing, the shape of the mushroom membrane expands - hence the tattooed image changes as well.
