imagines designs, prototypes and interfaces for future interspecies ecologies

The iteration of Zooetics Pavilion in “A Million Lines” exhibition at the Bunkier Sztuki Gallery of Contemporary Art, Krakow, Poland, incorporated sound element with the mycomorphs. The sounds, sourced from various life forms: maggots, crickets, stick-insects, seals and pelicans, were looped and mixed by sound artist Antanas Dombrovskij after an interspecies writing workshop Zoo Stories at the Lithuanian Zoo in Kaunas in October 2015. The mycomorphs here took on function as amplifiers for another case of interspecies communication.



Zooetics Pavilion was conceived in partnership with Baltic Champs, Lithuania-based edible mushroom production company. The Mycomorph Laboratory architecture was realized in collaboration with Paulius Vaitiekūnas, Andrius Pukis, Jautra Bernotaitė, Mykolas Svirskis; visualization – Sayjel Patel; mycelium growing technology – Paulius Pilipavičius, project communication – Dionizas Bajarūnas.  The project was also supported by contributions by Marijus Bakas, Dalius Keršys, Gediminas Stoškus, Skirmantas Zygmantas, and KTU volunteer students.
