The sharp-eyed wanderer of Shoreditch will have long noted these facsimile fungi festooning the many semi-derelict buildings in these parts. This vibrant myco-medley is the work of Christian Nagel. Made from polyurethane 'surfboard foam', fiberglass and stainless steel, the brightly coloured mushrooms can be spotted all over the City fringes. We've plotted the ones we know about on the map below, but welcome additions in the comments.
