Philip Ross

Philip Ross is an artist, inventor and entrepreneur whose work is focused on the relationships between human beings and the greater living environment.  His artworks and patents and publications are foundational to the field of mycotecture, a term he coined in 2008 to describe the art of designing and building with living mushroom materials, and his installations have been exhibited internationally at NY MoMA, The Kunst Halle Dusseldorf, and The Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art. In 2013, Philip co-founded MycoWorks, a company that grows biomaterials out of mycelium, and currently serves as Principal Investigator at Open Fung- an organization that builds collective resources for advancing fungi technology, materials and the arts. Clients for MycoWorks’ leather analogs include Hermes, Ligne Rosette and General Motors.
