Public art project for Chongqing (not realised)

digitally designed mushroom group
size and material according to location

On the occasion of an exchange workshop in 2011, we worked on a project for the city of Chongqing. After 2 weeks, the projects developped by the artists on site were presented at the Organhouse Art Space.
We worked on a huge group of mushrooms in public space. We researched into the local feasibility and possible locations throughout the town.

The project envisions to have mushroom groups emerge at different points on the planet, which are connected through the www, and have them make live music together. A Band of Floating Mushrooms in Münchenstein/Basel is the first object of this long term project. It was realized in Nov 2011, producing random sampled music over the Internet since.
