NOMADIC FUNGI: GERMINATION TO PROPAGATION

By the Nomadic Fungi Institute

Statement

This exhibition at Texas Discovery Gardens, Nomadic Fungi: Germination To Propagation brings together the most comprehensive collection of information currently available in regards to the growth and propagation of nomadic fungi.

Nomadic Fungi are a mutated species that have functionally adapted to feed on automobiles. They have the capacity to infiltrate cars and extract nutrients directly from them by rapidly biodegrading materials made from oil, plastic and synthetic rubber. The Nomadic Fungi Institute believes these voracious fungi constitute a serious threat to our nation’s transportation system and ultimately to the American way of life.

It is understandable that for a large portion of the public, the idea of a giant fungus eating cars is a little hard to swallow. That is why NFI adheres to in-depth research reinforced by the standards of pseudoscience. If the threat of nomadic fungi is not taken seriously there is a strong possibility we as a society will soon be riding horse drawn wagons on our morning commute.

Dr. B.F. Smith PhD established the Nomadic Fungi Institute in February of 2013. Since its inception, NFI has been aggressively investigating and documenting all events pertaining to unusually large mushrooms attached to cars. It is the mission of the Nomadic Fungi Institute to inform the public by way of exhibitions, publications and social media about the threat this fungus poses to modern life.

About the Founder

Mr. Brad Ford Smith has worked in the art field as an artist and an art conservator for well over two-dozen years producing lush works of abstract art and saving many fine pieces of art from the brink of oblivion. He accomplishes both with skill and passion, living the contented life of a middle aged starving artist.

While visiting his Aunt Monkey in Oklahoma City he came across an old dusty trunk filled with notebooks, documents, and photographs. These it turned out were the research papers of a Mr. Rotifer H. Wobbler, who was obsessed with what he described as Nomadic Fungi, a mutated fungus that feeds on automobiles.

After spending the weekend going through all the material in the trunk it became quite obvious to Mr. Smith that Mr. Wobblers research was extremely important and that someone needed to bring this to the public’s attention. So on February 19th of 2013 Mr. Smith established the Nomadic Fungi Institute. He was given the honorary title of Dr. B. F. Smith PhD and began his new career as a middle aged starving research archivist.

Since its inception, the Nomadic Fungi Institute has been aggressively investigating and documenting all events pertaining to unusually large mushrooms attached to automobiles.
