2016 Approximately 1 1/2' tall, 1' wide, and 8" in depth. Materials used: Styrofoam, paint, dye, oatmeal, sand, and plaster. Fungal bloom was the result of a fortuitous accident while experimenting with Styrofoam filled balloons. I let a Styrofoam filled balloon sit out over night not noticing until the next day that there was a small hole in the balloon. Slowly, over the course of a day or so, the contents of the balloon leaked out creating this form. The hole in the middle is where the balloon once sat.
