It must be myco-genesis!, Open School East Open Day, Margate, 2019.


It must be myco-genesis! was a research space and roving talk, telling deep-time stories of fungal co-evolution whilst live-inoculating bagged straw with oyster mushroom mycelium.  Drawing attention to the ways that fungi have formed symbioses that have shaped the evolution of life on earth – underpinning whole ecosystems and radically changing the rhythms of those who align with them – this talk offers various glimpses into the actions of these strange organisms.
