Hypha – Spitzenkörper – 2017 – 2018

This work investigates a variety of experimental processes, visual forms, and critical ideas that examine the development of  the Anthropocene, Biomimetics, and the role of community in catalyzing innovative social and political change.

My drawing process explores several organizations of microbiotas, mycelium (Hypha – Spitzenkörper), and concepts such as the Wood Wide Web. The complexity and inter-connectivity of microfungal forms extending their threads to all life through a dense web of symbiotic relationships. In forests, its synergetic mycorrhiza transfers nutrients from plant to plant and creates a network of informational chemistry beneficial to the whole ecosystem. The potential of these natural forms is apparent in their horizontal design of co-operation and collective functionality; an intercellular matrix that could be extended to the human sphere.

Drawing connects me to unconscious processes that allow for the development of new ideas; a site for research, meditation, dissemination, and a lab for exploring the resonance of form. Layers of visual information materialize as traces of the process itself by generating random visual possibilities and increasing surface dynamics. The multilayered film is often unstable, and is left open to unpredictable possibilities. As a result, the subject is often erased by the buildup of material and the application of new mark making.

This process enables me to explore areas of perception outside my immediate experience, while conceptually expanding my connection to surrounding environmental issues. – Jorge Costa

What’s On Our Minds: Theresa Hak Kyung Cha’s Dictee – LEMON HOUND 3.0


Day recedes to darkness
Day seen through the veil of night
Translucent grey film cast between daylight and dark
dissolving sky to lavender
to mauve to white until night overcomes.
Hardly a murmur
Between dark and night
Suspend return of those who part with rooms
While shadows ascent   then equally fade
Suspension of the secret in abandoned rooms
Passing of secret unknown to those who part
Day receding to dark
Remove light    Re move sounds to far. To farther.
Absence full. Absence glow. Bowls. Left as they are.
Fruit as they are. Water in glass as beads rise to the rim.
Radiant in its immobility of silence.
As night re   veils the day.


– Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-1982)


Today I’ve been thinking of Theresa Hak Kyung Cha’s “Aller/Retour” which appears in her experimental novel Dictee, originally published in 1982. My copy sits to my right, dog-eared and underlined. This poem appears in a series where we will explore other authors interactions with the text. 

Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-1982) was a poet, filmmaker, and artist. Theresa Hak Kyung Cha’s Dictee (1982) was put back into print by University of California Press in 2009.
