The interspecies connector invites you to plant your bare feet on its mycelium. Through the skin, the biggest organ to sense the outer world, you can connect with the mycelium’s electrical communication. Rhiza emerged as an aspiration to enable human beings to transgress their own species and connect with otherness in multiple ways. This complex network, with its subtle blend of conflict and cooperation, can be seen as an example of how we relate to each other, and with our environmental systems. As with human society, this growing interspecies society is characterized by variety, with its capacity to help and hinder, to cooperate and to exploit. Nature is built on connections, and so are we.
