Paul Stammets, in his book, 'Mycelium Running ' describes mycelium as a matrix, a biomolecular superhighway, Earth's natural Internet. He also says that within a single cubic inch of topsoil there is enough mycelium cells to stretch more than eight miles if placed end to end. That we must enlist fungi as our allies,against all the man made toxic 'bitter fruits of science', which are causing our environment to break down.
Stammet says, 'tread softly on the web of life'

Steadily stitching marks on this roll of Terracota Mud cloth, varying size and colour of my marks. All my marks representing leaves in the canopy of the trees or the blanket of leaves on the forest floor as I walk. My first piece for our exhibition at Nature in Art.
Enjoying the meditative rhythm of the needle and thread through the cloth as I stitch, thinking of my favourite time of year surrounded by the comforting colours of Autumn, helping me forget the greyness of January.

Went to see the latest exhibition at the RWA, in Bristol last week - Arboretum - which explores the art of the tree. With this installation of white sycamore, steel & bone, as a centre piece.
One of my favourite pieces by Fiona Hingston who has used earth & charcoal on paper to draw these trees. A beautiful ethereal piece.
The whole gallery had a lovely peaceful atmosphere as we walked through. I feel truly inspired, but perhaps I am biased as my passion is trees.
It deserves another visit.
