FUNGI is dealing with the oldest living species on earth that grow build and spread their communities across human borders, continents, laws,… . It is a living organism that detoxifies the earth, makes networks between plants and trees create life and livable groups for animals, plants and humans. This enourmous and necissary machinism with countless species are the model for medicins, digital webs and ecological solutions. They can change our minds, heal our bodies and even help us avoid environmental disaster; they are metabolic masters, earth-makers and key players in most of nature's processes. Fungal kingdoms are everywhere.

This project is an installation and a publication. The accrochage shows a number of blow-ups of marcro-photographed fungi. The prints will appear and disappear according to the temperature in the room.

Two heating systems are installed under the works to provide change. By a timing system the heaters could go on and off. The viewer will not be able to control what he sees. Each hour the images will be different showing and hiding parts of the work. The (un)natural process of appearance is accompanied by the responsibility, care and patience of the spectator and protector of the work.
