Studio ThinkingHand (b. 1985 and 1988)

Apotekerpassagen by Ramsherred 20.


Under the name of Studio ThinkingHand, Rhoda Ting and Mikkel Dahlin Bojesen primarily work with sculptures and installation art where, for example, fungi, bacterial cultures, or other microorganisms often help create the work over time.

Archetype consists of five circular light boxes, in which fungi and microbes have been allowed to develop and create organic images in predetermined rhizomatic patterns. Inspiration for the patterns derives from the fungi’s subterranean network of hyphae, the archetype of other rhizomatic patterns, known, for example, from nerve cells in the brain (astrocytes), the cosmic web in the universe, and the intricate Internet network.
The light boxes on the wall are linked in a network of burnished steel, lighting up and accentuating the electric impulses used by fungi for communication – the shape of the sculpture itself is rhizomatic just like the fungal subterranean network.
