Unexpectedly beautiful, ever changing landscapes of mould cultures develop under the glass of Moho table curating different narratives that are, in a sense, an extension of the self, triggering contradictory emotional responses of both disgust and awe, inspired by nature itself.
The user is invited to interact with the table, directly and indirectly being part not just an observer of the process.
To prepare the table the user removes the top cap and places an agar mix (sold with the table), then just lets the airborne mould to set in for about 10 minutes (or places a sample of bacteria previously collected) then replaces the cap, and let the process take its course.
The process can be repeated over and over or, if one so desires it can be stopped by pouring resin in preserving and stopping the growing of the bacteria.
Bordering the functional and the critical, Moho questions and redefines the idea of emotional attachment to objects, beauty, and consumption itself.
