The mushrooms slowly transition through several colours whilst the mycelium strobes and pulses and almost looks as if its moving around and sending messages around like the human bodies nervous system.
Mycelium Network includes three main concepts, colour changing clusters of mushrooms, the mycelium network, and most importantly, the animation of the mycelium, which represents the root structure being alive and communicating. Two separate fibre optic light sources and fibre optic bundles are used for this. One for the mushrooms stipes and caps and one for the mycelium which makes the roots look like they re moving around and communicating.
