During July and August Mycelio hosted biotechnology engineer and artist Ana Suárez who experimented with MycoMaterials using their facilities, materials and spawn. In this artistic project different substrates, species, forms and processes were tested. The results were fully colonized sheets of substrate that were later dried to stabilize the material. These MycoMaterials are biodegradable and have potential to be used in packaging, construction and all kind of objects.
