Tai Shani Explores Fungus as a Psychedelic Catalyst for Change

Turner Prize-winning artist Tai Shani’s first online artwork, The Neon Hieroglyph, premieres as part of Manchester International Festival’s Virtual Factory series. Drawing on her research into ergot, a grain fungus from which LSD is derived, Shani composed nine episodic films that explore psychedelics as a catalyst for change in what the curators describe as “a dreamlike CGI journey that takes us from the cellular to the galactic, from the forests to the subterranean, from the real to the almost unimaginable.”
