I’m a student in industrial design at UGent and for my masterthesis I’m currently working on bioluminescent materials. My goal to find a use for these in a product related environment to function as illumination, signalisation,…
As for now I have been growing 2 types of mycelium: Panellus Stipticus and Armillaria Mellea with P. Stipticus having the best results regarding luminescence.
I’m also planning to work with Omphalotus Nidiformis fungus and bioluminescent Dinoflagellates.
The following picture has been taken about one year after implementing spawn (P. Stipticus) on a log and is the brightest sample i have right now.
More of my pictures can be found at: https://bioluminescenceindesign.blogspot.com/
If you have any remarks or ideas, feel free to let me now.
I will try to keep this forum updated with my progress.
