The exhibition will be on display from January 12, 2023- February 25, 2023.

At any given time, we are surrounded by microscopic fungi. Our cohabitation with these invisible molds and yeasts is quite normal, regardless of where we live or how clean we keep our spaces. This exhibition exemplifies this reality by making the invisible visible and presenting a variety of fungi sampled from homes around the world. The visual component of the exhibition, fungal cultures within glass terrariums, is accompanied by sonic and tactile interpretations of the cultures as well. By means of a multi-sensory approach, this exhibition not only intends to demonstrate our entanglement with microscopic fungi but also to counter unwarranted apprehensions and misconceptions. The mixed media tactile pieces and cross-modal Sonifications invite the public to engage with and think about fungi in entirely new and non-threatening ways. This accessible, multi-sensory unveiling of our fungal roommates conveys just one microscopic example of the many interspecies entanglements that humans take part in.

Shannon Lee was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from UW-Milwaukee and her Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Art, Media, and Design from the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto. Shannon is a practicing artist, educator, and curator of art. With a history of studying science as well as art, Shannon fuses the two disciplines in her art practice.
