Fungi Screen

Alcarol

Fungi Screen is one Piece of Alcarol's Fungi Collection. It is made of four wooden boards, obtained by sewing daed Beech Trees with their native populations of fungal colonies found in the Italian Dolomite forest. The vertical arrangement seems to evoke the original forest trees, according to the idea of environmental cross-section of this extraordinary setting, aiming to transcend its ordinary perception.
One of the outstanding effects of the early stages of wood decay is the fungi texture inside the matter of the tree: the fungal growth can create some of the most dramatic and beautiful wood colour changes with regions of discoloration and intricate patterns of amazing dark lines, adding a new dimension to the woodgrain. Wood decay fungi is always unique. No two pieces are exactly the same because there’s precise time, place and environmental conditions for its genesis.
The natural wood live edges are frozen in a special extraclear resin resembling the winter ice that blocked the fungal activity. Freezing time at the end of the material’s cycle and giving it a new life before it goes to waste. The transient beauty of Nature becomes eternal.
