Experimental Drawing and Motion
Motion as the purpose exploration of drawing. The "thickening" of experience as information gatherers.
Within the mysterious comfort of darkness, is our nourishing decay. Mycorrhizal organisms form a mutually dependent beneficial relationship with the roots of host plants, ranging from trees to grasses. “Myco” means mushroom, “rhizal” means roots. The collection of filament of cells that grow into a mushroom body is called the mycelium. The mycelia of these mycorrhizal mushrooms can form an exterior sheath covering the roots of plants and are called ecto-mycorrhizal. When they invade the interior of the root cells of host plants they are called endomycorrhizal. In either case, both organisms benefit from this association. Plant growth is accelerated. The resident mushroom mycelium increases the plant’s absorption of nutrients, nitrogenous compounds, and essential elements (phosphorous, copper, and zinc). By growing beyond the immediate root zone, the mycelium channels and concentrates nutrients from afar. Plants with mycorrhizal fungal partners can also resist diseases far better than those without.
