starchitecture...

i wanted to post a few quick shots of the structures now that they are installed. it was a pretty wild ride, but everything has gone great. the piece on top holds around 5 people at once, the hanging piece, probably 3 people can stand beneath at one time. the architect did an unbelievable job translating my model into large scale structures (the fact that the cleaning crew mistakenly threw away my cardboard model will tell you all you need to know about what i gave him to work with!).

i arrived in the rain to see the pieces constructed in the carpenter's studio, then the next day they were taken apart and driven to the biennial site, and then we spent some days re-building, tweaking, etc. it was an unbelievable job by everyone involved, and it has been quite exciting to see something realized in this way.

the sound was added last, and fortunately stands on its own even with structures at such a large scale, with much presence. now i will have to figure out if i ever want to work at this scale again... but for the moment i'm quite happy.

Hey Steve,
The sculpture looks great! (sculptures?) I'd like to hear the sound they make. I like the idea of climbing around inside a wonky cardboard construction. Reminds me of when I was a kid and imagined myself driving my HotWheels cars.
Sounds like a fun process too.
Congratulations!
