Features

Overall features of Mutopia:

  • All seed Pods and root balls approx. 3’ diameter.
  • Radially symmetrical seed Pod form, cracks and disintegrates in sections.
  • Root system between Mutopians. Continuous around spiral layout; carries lines as well as provides lift, structure, and people guidance.

Indivdual Pod Features:

Raised roots on either side, few root legs reaching
out between Pod sections.
Overall height: 2’
Width of exposed Pod: 3’
Effects: Embedded LED’s, seeping steam, random vibrating motion, sound component.

10. Cracked seed Pod sitting fully on ground, raised
roots between 10 and 9, outrigger supports & side
roots reaching in all directions. Small sprouting out of top of partially exposed root ball.
Overall height: 3’
Width of exposed Pod: 3’
Effects: Embedded LED’s, seeping steam, random vibrating motion, first ambient flame effect in baby sprouts, sound component.

9. Cracked and sprouting Pod. Root masses
on either side raised with multiple outriggers.
Overall height: 4’6”
Height of Pod/ball from ground: 6”
Height of sprout growth from ball: 1’
Effects: Embedded LED’s and video screens, unfolding sproutlet wing-arms activated by pro-matics, exhaust fuels mini-head unfurling in center of sprout mass, sound component.

8. Much more opened Pod, multiple raised
roots with outrigger supports Root masses between 8 and 9 form bench area.
Overall height: 6’
Height of Pod/ball from ground: 1’6”
Height of sprout growth from ball: 1’6”
Effects: Embedded LED’s, multiple pro-matic wing-arms, exhaust fuels mini-heads in sprout center, sound component.

7. Seed Pod sections partially fallen away
from root ball.
Overall height: 8’
Height of Pod/ball from ground: 2’
Height of sprout growth from ball: 3’
Length of wing-arms: 3’-4’
Effects: Multiple pro-matic wing-arms, exhaust fuels mini-heads in sprout center, sound component.

6. Seed Pod sections falling away from root
ball, multiple structural roots. 4 wing arms opened and extended to touch those of 5. Multiple uncurling sproutlets at root ball. Root masses between 5 and 6 drop down to ground, create pass-through in spiral.
Overall height: 10’
Height of root ball from ground: 3’
Height of sprout growth from ball: 4’
Length of wing-arms: 4’ – 5’
Effects: Embedded LED’s, upward-pointing multi-directional propane “poofer”.

5. Root ball mostly exposed. Sprout growth
includes wing-arms reaching across to either side, and extending to meet those of 1; 5 wings total. Large unfurled heads above canopy.
Overall height: 12’
Height of root ball from ground: 4’6”’
Height of sprout growth from ball: 4’6”
Length of wing-arms: 5’ – 7’
Effects: Embedded LED’s, misting flame effect in wing-arms. 2 swinging multi-directional propane “poofers” hang above head high but below canopy, sound component.

4. Large active head above canopy, other
smaller head-lets surround. Raised root masses that allow pass-thru below them.
Overall height :14’.
Height of root ball from ground: 5’
Height of sprout growth from ball: 6’
Length of wing-arms: 7’
Effects: Embedded LED’s, misting flame effect, 3 swinging multi-directional propane “poofers” hang above head high but below canopy, sound component.

3. Roots between 3 and 2 drop to ground,
allowing pass-through.
Overall height 16’.
Height of root ball from ground: 6’
Height of sprout growth from ball: 7’
Length of wing-arms: 7’
Effects: Embedded LED’s, misting canopy, actuated liquid flame effect in sprout head, smaller head-lets provide ambient flame & pilot, sound component.

2. Overall height 18’
Height of root ball from ground: 7’
Height of sprout growth from ball: 8’
Length of wing-arms: 7’
Effects: Embedded LED’s, misting canopy, actuated liquid flame effect in sprout head, smaller head-lets provide ambient flame & pilot, upper root masses feature rubenesque tubes.

1. Overall height 20’
Height of root ball from ground: 8’
Height of sprout growth from ball: 9’
Length of wing-arms: 7’
Effects: Embedded led’s, misting canopy, actuated liquid flame effect in sprout head, large smaller head-lets provide ambient flame & pilot, upper root masses feature rubenesque tubes, sound component.
