In a maze, an allusion to a permaculture spiral, the nooks of rampant fungal mycelia changes with zones of a stuffy void. This rhythmic layering, inspired by the real environment of the apartment building is linked to an ecstatic inhale, which is replaced by endless exhalation after the use of antidepressants. The results of the investigation will be posted in front of the visitors' forum in the aseptic space outside the foil-tree. Somewhere, in the disintegrated centre of the foil-tree, elegies will run on on countless contemporary correct ethnographies. The digital image will resonate with its mouldy milieu because decay as the basis for the new is their common denominator.

Kristína and Martina have been cultivating a close collaboration since March 2018 and, since November 2019, mould. In February 2020 the mould will die. 

The project is realized thanks to financial support from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno. The previous research leading to the realization of this project was supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council in the frame of a stipendium.
