|| WOOD WIDE WEB ||
The wood wide web is the internet of mycelium connecting all living things throughout forest. It is a vast invisible network of fungus that is all around us and symbiotically coexisting with plants to create life. The mycelium network enables the trees to communicate by spreading spores to create a highly consciousness root system. The wood wide web visibly fruits above ground as mushrooms.
These mushrooms recycle the world’s natural waste making entire ecosystems habitable. Without the fungi kingdom, our life cycle would not be complete.
The fungi kingdom have been on this earth long before humans have been here.
They broke down the rock that created the soil that created life on earth. The mushrooms are here to preserve the earth. They are capable of healing human induced earth destruction such as oil spills, EMF rays, radiation, waste and pollution. They are so intelligent--could they be from another planet?
The Wood Wide Web roaming character crew is the living embodiment of the mushroom kingdom. They are a family of mushroom beings with a strong mycelium connection, who are seeking others to join their network to unify the forest. The Wood Wide Web spreads spores and builds the web by eye contact, synching their breath and toning with forest dwellers. They came from planet Zygomycota with the intention to save the earth. Their purpose is to remind us of the invisible network that connects all living beings. They celebrate the power of the mushrooms to carry forth the circle of life. The Wood Wide Web spreads earth magic, activism, and wisdom of medicinal mushrooms trough play, connection, presence and movement.
All characters are based on different species of medicinal mushrooms. These specific mushrooms have some of the most healing benefits for humans. The individual healing benefits of each species are incorporated in the character development. The names of the characters are based on their species’ scientific name. Each look is embellished with real preserved dried mushrooms and resin orgonites with mushroom, crystal, and metal essences to attune the performer to the vibrational frequency of each species.
