The Nature of Cordyceps



This film clip was taken during the Nature of Cordyceps exhibition held at the Gallery at North Haven Gardens in Dallas Texas. It was the first public exhibition of documents pulled from the Nomadic Fungi Institute archives and focused as an introduction to what cordyceps are and how they could be related to nomadic fungi.

NFI Director Subject For Photographer

Bard Ford Smith





























Last month during a rare outing our Director, the obsessively dedicated and sun deprived research junkie, Dr. B.F. Smith PhD ended up at the photography studio of the very talented and gracious Kent Barker.

Kent has been working on a series he calls The Creatives. In this series he is documenting a cross section of the creative community living in Dallas Texas. This community includes painters, designers, architects, photographers, dancers, writers and now one musty smelling archivist from the Nomadic Fungi Institute.

Dr. Smith is pictured here in a freshly cleaned lab coat proudly displaying three jars containing successfully sprouted Nomadic Fungi. The staff at NFI are very proud of this portrait and are truly amazed at Kent's ability to capture the more dignified side of our Director.
