The Myco-Planning Network – Higinio Martinez

The Myco-Planning Network


The Myco-Planning Network is a project aimed towards exploring the use of biological systems for new innovation and development. Specifically, we seek to bring light to the social injustice and food poverty that affects New Mexico based off they current food system. Fungal mycelium growth will be used as a model for mapping out resource distribution by manipulating parameters within experimentation to represent food insecurity in the state. This concept and results will be displayed in and interactive art installation which is being displayed at the Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe. We hope that this project generates further conversation and research that can contribute to this new approach to biomimicry.
