Fera Moira

In Fera Moira (Greek for “wild fate”) mushrooms sprout from architectural salvage, portraying ecological life in a possible future. The installation reveals their delicate underground mycelia, the filaments that connect and nourish all forest life. In an era of ruin and despair, Fera Moira is ultimately hopeful.
