Pure Culture is a project in which I have been growing a series of sculptural objects from living mushrooms.
The image on the top of the page is from a show called Life Like that took place in 2001 at New Langton Arts in San Francisco. This one was grown to take on the form of Harold Edgerton's famous photograph of a drop of milk splashing into some water. It was exhibited while alive in a sealed vitrine.
