Reimagining the data center as mycelium

Installation composed of a virtual walk (as the fungal tip) inside the data center floor, screens depicting slowly rotating scans of the Google forest floor, an array of abstracted and luminescent 3D-printed mushrooms and a publication. The video on the back wall / documentation at Skiens Kunstforening is by Istvan Virag.

The virtual walk was made in collaboration with Henning Grøttebø-Skar at Encircle Games (VR) and Pernille Meidell (music).

The rotating 3D-scans depict fleeting objects in the forest, such as mushrooms and ice.

The 3D-printed sculptures were modelled after mushrooms cultivated by the artist.

A publication with the same name was produced for the exhibition.
