Fungal Datascapes: A Sporous Commons of Mushrooms and Climate

VR - AR Sweden 2021

By: Jens Evaldsson Rut Karin Zettergren

The 360-degree film Fungal Datascapes by Rut Karin Zettergren, Finn Arschavir and Jens Evaldsson invites us to leave our anthropocentric viewpoint and enter a world normally beyond our scope of understanding. The viewer moves through the life cycle of fungal spores: from microscopic to global scale. In an innovative way, this artwork opens up new artistic and intellectual perspectives. What does the weather feel like underground? How would we experience it as fungi? What are the connections between our world and the world of fungi? We rarely think about the relationship between fungi and our climate. Yet the life, compost, and decay of fungi are interwoven with the emergence of weather and climate change.
