I LOVE MUSHROOMS
HENCE I DECIDED TO LOOK INTO THE SEM OF THE MYCELIUM THREAD OF SHIITAKE MUSHROOM!
Stretched chewed gum across the frame formed by lollipop sticks
Sadly, the chewing gum started to flake as I failed to remove all the sugar and the surface was too thin hence it started to tear.
Felt that the structure was too geometric as I intended for it to have a more organic structure.
YASSSSYAYYYYYAHOOOO IT DIDN’T TEAR AND MANAGED TO RETAIN THE STRETCHED TEXTURE OMGGGGGGGGYASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
Was inspired by tensile structures. I really like the taut curves formed by the planes of textile.
