At The Table : A Mycelium Game
November 23, 2015 at Links Hall
This fall we took on an experiment in social technology and community health inspired by mycelial communication (mushrooms!). Influenced by the mycelium network and their behavior, we explored models of community exchange that respond to individuals as members of a collective ecosystem.
At this November event we presented the next steps towards our socially engaged project, a participatory game that we began working on in September. The game is devised from a series of prompts made in response to the biological communication of the mycelial network.
We invite audience members to participate with our team of collaborators to negotiate opportunities for exchange and co-create unfamiliar models of conversation and interactive activities to discover resilient and responsive new forms of social architecture.
