Mycorrhiza is the result of the symbiotic association between fungi and plant roots. At the horticultural high school in Blois, it symbolises an alliance between the students of the Horti and Tcvpj final year classes, their teacher Philippe Petit and an artist, Karine Bonneval.
An organic tangle created from earth and recycled cellulose, it suggests thinking about our precious and indispensable interactions with non-human life. The organisms that live outside our field of perception, underground, are precious and fragile allies.
This sound installation, brought back to our human scale, proposes to consider them with more attention. The sounds broadcasted are recordings of the movements of invertebrates living in the soil of the permaculture vegetable garden and the compost of the high school's greenhouses.
