Dimensions: 240(h) x 70(d) mm
The Godlight series of pendant lighting is one of the ongoing experimental fabrication outputs from The Mycelium Lab at @myceliumstudios. For us an exploration of behavioural product, organic forms, sensory immediacy and the relationship between consumerism and ecological death. Existential lighting. Is it dead, slowly dying or just in hibernation?
A set of pendants that goes beyond the concept of waste and explores how the materiality of an object can be a lived experience. The medium is funghi, we grew a structural material from inoculation through to mycelial expansion. This focuses on the beauty of natural growth and explores “bio-partnering” as a design methodology.
Godlight is an experiential product using light to explore a living aesthetic. By letting the light die we develop the end product, engaging in a discourse of mass consuming as global suicide.
