Illuminated Shroom. Wind can be perceived as a variable force that blows during the daytime and goes quiet at night. By having this in mind, Peter Courtemanche created an installation “Illuminated Shroom”, which is a solar powered creature (looks like a large tree fungus) that monitors and records wind during the daytime, and at night it uses its findings to create a pattern of light, played-back on amber LEDs. The shroom also sends its wind data to the internet in the form of TiKs.
“Illuminated Shroom” demonstrates the unrepeatable blow of wind: every night the shroom’s reflection of day-time wind is different and produces a different pattern of lights.
