WHAT ATE MY SEAT?
As one of the Craft Contemporary events, What Ate My Seat? tells the story of a set of mycelium stools. These are placed in different locations in Victoria, Australia, and New York, USA. Stools are photographed on a weekly basis, documenting their changes. For example, a stool installed in Apollo Bay is knocked over by a nosy creature. When it rains, it turns brown. When it dries, it turns back to white again. A wallaby tastes its edge one day. Depending upon each stool's surrounding environment, it may exhibit different changes through the winter in Australia and summer in the USA. Documentation of these changes are exhibited at little wonder's website, and the Growerycollective website alongside observational notes. Through October, the site will be updated regularly with the changes. We do not know what will happen to them; thus, it is be an experimental process.
