The Myco-Box is a platform for cultivating fungus and monitoring its reaction to the environment, including human's online behaviors.
The project is designed to explore and raise questions about empathy, connection and nature in a networked social landscape. By linking the natural system of a fungus network with a growing environment that is controlled by internet data streams, the Myco-Box project creates a platform for environmental explorations and commentary.
