Mycorrhizal fungi exist within the soil in natural environments in symbiotic relationships with plant roots. The fungi have an enhanced capacity to source vital nutrients and water; in return the plants donate carbohydrates. This nutrient transfer network promotes sustainability, drought tolerance, longevity, pollution and disease resistance. My practice is to create plant-based designs and products that harness the as yet under-appreciated beneficial qualities of this valuable relationship. My aim is to find solutions to generate healthier green spaces within the urban environment to counteract pollution and to help relieve stress within the populace.
