The Mycelium Network spans the globe.

As a group of artists, technologists and scientists, our works coalesce in forming expanded reality installations and theatrical performances of both live and VR/AR theatre. 

We are sound artists, actors, creative technologists and scientists, puppet makers and educators. 

Tosca is the node that connects us. Her research and work as a GEM member (Genome, Environment and Microbiome Community of Excellence) SUNY at Buffalo, along with working with Aerospace engineer Dr. Valeria La Saponara and the Cahto water protectors in Bio and Myco-remediation measures, our project-based work focuses on the intelligence of the interstitial that forms the living webs around us. 

To see, hear and feel the invisible. Healing our connections within the shared environment. 

Moving beyond thinking of ourselves as isolated individuals

Fungi wrangler

Tosca is working with artists, scientists, programmers and various fungi towards bringing this project to reality. A Bioart related residency with the Coalesce Centre for Biological Art Tosca worked with SEM, Confocal and AFM microscopy captures to better inform the Holobiont and Symbiotic 3D final VR/AR production.  ​ Sculpting 3D assets, collecting biodata, cultivating mycelium, composing world soundscape with various fungi, developing AR didactic information, installation layout, sensor circuitry, holobiont aesthetics. ​ Follow Tosca on Threads @mothantler or Instagram and watch the Symbiogenesis production unfold.  ​ Tosca's Mycelium bio-sonification collaborations can be found here, ​ Sonic work as Nanotopia can be found here, ​
