Artist collective Belly & Bones (Stef Choi & Tony Candelaria) have created an interactive zoetrope sculpture for Oregon Mushroom Stories that presents a fungi lifecycle, from mycelium to mushroom. With the spin of a crank this larger-than-life zoetrope (six feet in diameter!) presents a sequence of sculptures that sprout into mushrooms right before your eyes.
Oregon Mushroom Stories, a project of Ecotrust and Edible Portland, brings the surreal, fantastical beauty of mushrooms, and the knowledge of growers, foragers and fanatics, out of the dark to a broad audience. Join PICA and Oregon Mushroom Stories for a weekend of mycological happenings at the crossroads of nature and culture, science and art, food and fungi.
