“Art and Ecology: In the Spirit of the Suffragettes” Mycelial tiles workshop with Mae-ling Lokko
October 2, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT
Mae-ling will be offering a virtual overview of her work with mycelia from 10:00-10:30am. Her brief presentation will be followed by a small number of participants at NATURE Lab who will engage in a workshop creating the mycelial tiles.
Mae-ling Lokko is an architectural scientist and biomaterials technology researcher from Ghana and the Philippines whose work centers on the upcycling of agrowaste and biopolymer materials. Her research integrates a broad range of criteria that questions contemporary material-value systems to evolve life cycle design to meet generative justice criteria.
Lokko teaches seminars and design studios on energy and ecology in relation to the built environment, upcycling and ecoeffective material life cycle design. Lokko holds a Ph.D. and Masters of Science in Architectural Science from the Center from Architecture, Science and Ecology, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and B.A from Tufts University.
