Sweet fruit from Fungus
Translation of desire from fruit to fungus.
Fruiting Bodies is a series of man-made fruits speculating on the future use of fungal biomass in human food production (which might not seem exactly appetising). The intention is to connect recent innovation and sustainable food ingredients with human desire and to create new products with hindsight on our biology and co-evolution with plants.
The design of the fruiting bodies is inspired by human primary and secondary reproductive organs.
