Vigilante 2

Iván Navarro
2018

The second watchman stands guard over the oyster mushroom’s great pink mycelia, which hangs from the vault’s ceiling. This watchman is located in a corner, like a bodyguard. After passing by Pleurotus ostreatus crops in bags, we find the watchman in a festive position: encountering a mushroom in a forest or any other habitat is a unique encounter, a precise coincidence. For this very reason, an increasing number of new fungi species can be found in the world each year.
