Maya Hey’s interests in kombucha are as a fermented food substance and its nonhuman relationship to its human consumers/hosts. WhiteFeather’s research with kombucha includes using the cellulose substrate as a biomaterial for embedding conductive thread and soft circuitry, to produce (a)live electronics. Théo’s research interests with kombucha cellulose include experiments with overlaying it on mycelium scaffolds and/or incorporating mycelium growth with cellulose growth. Théo and WhiteFeather have collaborated together on hybrid cellulose garment construction. See Bucci for more information on the collaboration.
