The Future Is Fungi

This Project is a celebration of Fungal life & Mycelium.

Merlin Sheldrake, a biologist, mycologist and author, suggests we should celebrate Fungi the same way as Plant and animal life as mycology is a neglected Mega science. If we harness this microbial world, it can be a useful alliance to adapt to a damaged planet and re examine our bad habits. I want to make people think of fungi in a new way and show off what this clever organism can do.

Digital Holidays

The question arises of how we take a break when we feel under such obligation to work and meet our targets. 2020 also introduced the complexity of being unable to travel due to the worldwide pandemic. This unique situation as created a workforce without a break and without a desire to take one. This project poses the question of what a speculative future of holidaying could be, embracing the tools and devices around us to take adventures far beyond our office chairs. Time to take a digital break?

You Can’t Have Your Cake & Eat It

Social media is dominating our everyday lives acting as a catalyst around the stigma of bodies and fat phobia. This is a constant issue with social platforms taking down diverse images and the algorithms only promoting the ‘conventional’ bodies. Diet culture is essentially societies acceptance for eating disorders, they encourage starvation, restrictive nutrition and many other unhealthy habits. Magazines promote this behaviour and idolise it through celebrity statuses. You Can’t Have Your Cake & Eat It is a series of art directed photography that exposes the toxic traits within the diet culture through a satirical narrative
