Title:
Net-Work

Author:

Description:
“Net-Work” is a socially engaged fibre-art installation based on the science of tree communication. 190 participants worldwide have created 300 hand-crafted ‘strands’ to embody the vast underground network of mycorrhizal fungi that enables symbiotic tree interaction. Collaborators include artists, crafters, weaving guilds, family units, & Indigenous groups, working with varied natural fibres. The project has stimulated dialogue not only on our mutualist relationship with nature, but also on the recent elevated significance of our ‘virtual’ network of interconnection. This project encourages collaboration and communication between a widespread and diverse group of participants, initiating reflection and dialogue on creative ways to foster human-nature connectedness.
