Although here at ØSMOSIS Mycelium and its vast functionality has been exhibited regularly, new functions for this miracle fungus are being used and tested as we gasp for solutions and replacements for basic materials (which are a foundation to our plastic/petrol based consumerist society). This mass migration runs with ever exceeding velocity as the rapid quantity of oil dwindles in numbers and the clock ticks away.
In response to the desperation a new surge of start ups and design companies have been sprouting up left and right creating, and producing truly green and sustainable products to serve our never ending needs. At the same time may people have taken it upon themselves to create and learn how to use synthetic biology for their own personal needs creating a super highway of discovery and innovation . People have begun a resurgence for selfmate solutions and from making bioplastics in your kitchen to brewing your own textiles here you have a great way to make green building blocks which can also replace your current toxic home insulation. This "Bio-Modernism" may just be what keeps society in motion with Humans working with Nature rather than against it.
