What is the next step in the technological evolution of lighting systems – from fireplaces to candles, from gas to electricity? This project is a speculation on how we will illuminate our future interiors and is an effort to explore the light-producing properties of bioluminescent fungi outside the usual confines of scientific practice.

The project is an intricate system of tubes that simulates the effects of a bioluminescent interior, turning the architectural envelope into a performative shell in transformation. In the bioluminescent interiors of the future, space, matter and light become one.
