Mushroom Totem

A.R. Travis's avatar A.R. Travis

- Mushroom Cloud - - Cedar w/Abalone Inlay - -The piece was originally conceived when I was given a unique cedar log by my Dad, circa 2009. I finally got around to starting it late 2016 and finishing Sept. '17. - -A few shells utilized were collected first-hand on the Mendocino, CA shoreline; most were sustainably sourced from Australia. - -Total shell count is around 250 - - Display box electronics include fifteen micro-eyeball LEDs w/dimmer controller and recycle timer - - Intermittently, every few minutes for several minutes, emits Green and Blue radiation (visible spectrum) - - Many shapes and contours that are open for interpretation to include two faces that I picture as staring skyward and bewildered by a rising mushroom cloud. - -AKA, "Forecast Cloudy" -
