The 'Party Poetry' Celebration Banners turn our notions of beauty into a fun party room where the words we normally see in the confines of pages in books become a part of our social experience. There is so much more in life to celebrate than birthdays and weddings.

Naomi Hocura & Nicole Dawkins - COSMIC MUSHROOM FOREST

Some scientists are hopeful that these mushrooms could be proof of life on a sister planet.
