Hello my name is Raphaël.
I don’t know if you remember me Winnie, we met in december in Ghent. I am this young french designer who came hitchhicking from the south of France.
If you recall, we discussed myceliums and my project of floating modules in mycelium to create diving plateforms, gardens or utopian islands.
The project’s leaflet if you’re interested
Back then you told me about this forum, and I thank you for it ! Really, this community is awesome ! You guys are all so incredible !
I now have a shed where I can grow mycelium again. Also I have obtained a project with the Fine Arts of Marseille wich is the construction of a watercraft.
I’m looking for a strong mycelium (and substrate) to grow around plastic waste and create somekind of a pirogue. Phill Ross talks about “maritime fungi” but I doubt that any fungi would resist without treatment in the sea. What do you think ?
Also I will not grow it in a lab, so pasteurization and everything will be pretty rough and DiY so I need a resistant strain wich won’t infect easily or anything.
Do you think of a fungi that would suit my needs ?
I thank you all for your precious advises and wish you all a great day.
