Forest Funghi

Over the last couple of years I’ve been exploring the world of fungus and have discovered the mycelial network. My piece - Tonghus was reflecting on language after a period spent in Rome without my mother tongue. This piece explores ideas of language, communication and identity. La Lingua, meaning both language and tongue, makes its way across the surface of it's host, a tree skeleton, multiplying and spreading in fungus-like formations. Tonghus became a metaphor for humankind, linked by La Lingua that both connects, divides, creates and destroys. This led to my discovery and research of mycelium and the incredible world of fungus.
