Life Size Mousetrap Game Crushes 1000 lb. Pumpkin
Mark Perez and crew set up the Life Size Mousetrap in San Francisco for a run of three nights of shows October 28-30. The finale featured a 2-ton bank safe falling onto a 1000 pound pumpkin. Nice. I didn’t see it actually moving at Burning Man this year, but it’s quite a spectacle to behold just sitting still. It’s really a remarkable piece. (pieces?)
There’s a great photo set from the event posted on flickr.
Anyone out there have video?
The LIFE SIZE MOUSETRAP is a fantastically crafted, 16 piece, 50,000-lb kinetic sculpture set atop a 6,500 square foot game board. The sculpture is based on and closely parallels the popular childrens’ board game Mousetrap.
