The project of Sofi da East consists of 12 pencil-drawings on paper, which visualize the process of cultivation and growth of the Psilocybe cubensis Golden Teacher.

The fruits need eight days until they are ready to be picked up. Afterwords they are pickled in a hot mixture of water, vinegar and herbs. They are preserved  in a small jar with a golden cap following an eastern traditional recipe.

“Soaking up the Wilderness. Research on the Home-made Utopia” is an educational social project, which could be easily reproduce in every haushold, no matter how advanced are the skills of the person, who repeats the experiment at home. It is addressed mostly to those homo sapiens, who would like to widen their affective abilities and try some alternatives within the humanistic routine. The pickled mushrooms conserve the nature_cultural processes and show creative possibilities of matter, which thickens in situated installations. The project is developed within the laboratory research of the Virtual Feminist University and is financially supported by the Psychotronic Society of the Speculative Mushroom Pickers.
