INTERFERENCE SPORES
2023



2023
Interference Spores is an augmented mycelium network. Myceylium uses neural-like spikes in electrical activity[1} to share and process information throughout its network of hyphae. Interference Spores amplify mycelium's intricate patterns of electrical communications to black out attached lights and broadcast signals on the same frequency as WIFI networks.

Developed by Shira Wachsmann and John Wild.

Interference Spores was exhibited at ‘A pAIn in the...’, an exhibition and program of workshopd exploring critical Artifitial Intelegence (AI) narratives at season.s.z.n Gallery, London, June 2023.
