Nothing crosses state lines here, folks, because I live in California. The thought of these competing somehow with the flora of the black rock dessert, though, is pretty funny. Like most all mushrooms, these grow where the conditions are just right. Their growth is very tenuous at best, and getting ...

Edibility

A few of you were concerned about people breaking into the display and trying to eat the mushrooms, getting sick possibly. I picked a few of the older specimens off last night, and I now know why there isn't much known about the edibility of these. They are totally disgusting. They smell terrible an...

CapSmashy, what really makes this possible is the long maturation period for the fruits of this species. Pins to mature fruits take about 1 month, and then the fruits tend to hang around for about a month before they get sort of twisted and snarly. I also am in debt to my wife who helped me obtain t...

Thank you everyone for the encouraging words! I love to hear the people are interested in this. For many people this display will just be another glowing thing that is much weaker than the ones we are all used to (like glowsticks). For me, it's an amazing thing to see live mushrooms glowing! It just...

With this setback I doubt they'll finish it, but I just hope they show at all. It wouldn't be the first time a super ambitious project didn't show at all on the playa.

In order to eat them, and they are very tiny, one would have to destroy the entire display basically, breaking into the sealed aquarium. I am will mention that they are not edible or hallucinogenic on the display. I hate to have to do that since it sort of distracts from the display, but I think it'...

PS - One of the things that I am worried about with this project is that someone is going to try to consume these mushrooms to get high. They will be VERY sick if they do that. They won't die, but they might wish they were dead.

I don't have a problem with magic mushrooms, but this isn't about magic mushrooms. It's about my art project.

Super bright LED cowboy and angel costumes

I was as close as they allowed anyone to be to that scene, and that video does not do it justice. That thing was wickedly powerful and bright. In the video, the camera is having trouble with the exposure which makes it hard to see.
