Project Description

100% Biodegradable Fungi Paper

Brief: Create a poster response to the notion of ‘structure’.

Description: I took further my research from VF and noticed that fungi can also be used for paper making. Fungi paper is a world changing alternative to regular wood-based paper.  It can change the whole concept of the paper industry. While regular paper manufacturers destroy woodlands to produce their paper, I want to offer people the eco-conscious option. Fungi paper is 100% biological and once disposed of, it becomes a nutrient for new life. It is suitable for drawing, painting, printing and any type of activity that involves using paper.

I constructed my own paper press and water tank to perform the operation in the home environment.
