TEN MILLION YEARS A MUSHROOM

“Ten Million Years a Mushroom” is a non-linear narrative which explores the evolution of a set of characters. Presented as a scroll with an aged feel to it, it appears to be a cross between a found artefact and a modern photo-fiction.

The title refers to the theory that, as life began on earth about 400 million years ago, the tree of life saw a split. In one genetic kingdom were plants, and in the other was us (animals) and mushrooms. For about ten million years, mushrooms shared a common evolutionary history with humans.
