A Beautiful Fungus Graveyard


Last month's UCLA-Leonardo Art|Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER) included a fabulous lightning talk from Seri Robinson, a professor of wood anatomy at Oregon State University and a wood artist. She works with wood colored by fungal pigments, exploring the interactions between different species as they grow and bump in to each other to leave behind beautiful patterns. You can watch the video below and check out more information from The Corvallis Advocate or from her site.
