Rotting - Environmental and Self-degrading Lights / Warning Lights

Rotting - Environmental and Self-degrading Lights

A series of environmental and self-degrading "warning lights".
The shell is made of plastic and has a reflective pattern, and the interior is partially filled with mycelium.
The confrontation between plastic and mycelium is also responding to man and nature, and light is a symbol of hope.
I wish to arouse people's reflection on themselves and the relationship between human and nature through the degradation between plastic and mycelium.
