Connected is a developing project that repurposes single-use Key Kegs, used for beer, into a form that mimics mycelia and responds to sound from the surrounding environment. Only in its early stages, we aim to make this into a large scale installation looking through a macro lens of fungal networks that biomimic in which trees speak to each other.

Alongside music and social activity, the technology uses code so that it can alternate its response to its environment.
Using controllers that can be taken apart and put back together again, it defines our ethical values on circularity.
