ORDER SINθ #26 NOW
What does it mean to understand the world as infinitely changeable, the way a mushroom does? Might the fungus lead us to means of resistance and resilience, when there is so much operating against our survival? sinθ #26 “FUNGUS 菌" is a breeding ground of pieces that take up space between the cracks, creating networks with no beginning or end, eating the surface it holds together.
