The Amanita Arcade consists of four large mushrooms that stand approximately 7,8,10 &12ft tall. The Stalks are constructed of discs of plywood connected at 3 points by rebar. They are anchored to the ground using steel cable. The caps are made of PVC pipe, made into a frame. The stalks and caps will be skinned in fabric and internally lit with LED strip lighting. Four smaller mushrooms, will act as buttons for the interactive component of the piece. It plays like the game ‘Simon’. The large mushrooms flash a pattern that the player repeats by pressing the smaller mushrooms.
The piece needs some reconstructing and upgrading after last year’s season. As well, we would like to add a score board.
