Taro's mushroom - transmediale 2017

My mycelium network is nearly immortal, only the sudden toxification of a planet or the explosion of its parent star can wipe me out… all my mycelial networks in the galaxy are in hyperlight communication across space and time.
- Terence McKenna, The Mushroom speaks

Mycelium Network Society is a brand new network initiative from INFOLAB at Stadtwerkstatt (Linz, Austria) and CycleX (Andes, New York).

Mycelium Network Society is an underground network imagination situated in a post-internet mudland and powered by fungus, spores, culture, kitchen, radio, transmission, installations, workshops and performances.

Mycelium Network Society pursuits magic mushroom, from a state of hyper-hallucination to collective fungal consciousness, investigates the fungi culture, its network capacity to communicate and process information.

Mycelium Network Society as an after nature’s network commands its own domain in human-disturbed forests - sprouting across the moisture of rich soils, expanding its colonies, sharing informations, networking co-habitants across borders

Mycelium Network Society seeks out mycelium to lead us out of the ruins, to construct political tactics, to salvage economic meltdown, to persist in constant molecular communication a la mycelium mode.
