Take the interactive, moving “Cradle of Life” throne (below), which is just about ready to host revelers. See Part 1 of our preview of the show here.

Coming in October: “Hi-Fructose Presents: The Art of The Mushroom,” an exploration into artists’ interpretations of the friendly, deadly, tasty, hallucinogenic, phallic, alien, and legendary mushroom. The show is curated by Hi-Fructose, premiering at Oakland’s The Compound Gallery on October 20. (Above art by Naoto Hattori.)
