Currently, I am working on the sound sculpture Core Being. It is inspired by the subterranean network known as the Wood Wide Web. This collaborative structure consists of certain kinds of fungi that exist in symbiosis with plants. These fungi send out through the soil very fine threads that weave into the tips of plant roots at a cellular level. Through this weaving, individual plants and trees are joined together underground. Their symbiotic nature of existence was something that inspired my creative process and resulted in me making this sculpture. The design underlines the collaboration since the sculpture’s potentials can not be fully realised unless at least two individuals work together. The sculpture brings these elements forward with its ‘roots’ that go into different directions in the space and connect the performers together.
