Nancy Baker Cahill creates an animated augmented reality installation named Mushroom Cloud accessed through Baker Cahill’s free AR app named ‘4th Wall’. Public will witness the AR as it explodes up from the ocean surface and transforms overhead into a cloud of a different kind; a resilient and generative mycelial network. The NFT's will include the individual ‘nodes’ that mimic the aesthetics of the mycelium animation.
To be released November 30th. "
