Peeks into Process

As the deadline for the Anacortes Arts Festival gets nearer, it’s exciting to see everything falling into place. On Monday, the acrylic bases for the underwater scape were ready for pick up, and a productive trip to a local hardware store netted casters, lights, pulleys, and more. The last of the specialized PVC joints arrived Thursday, so the frame went up that very day. And I have started painting the various smaller pieces, readying them to be hung in their appropriate places. A few of the bigger sections of the installation still need to be finalized, but it’s great to see an abstract concept becoming a concrete reality.

Here’s a few pictures of what’s going on. Please mark your calendars for August 2-3 to see the real thing in person!

Steampunk Installation; Work in Progress, Pt. 2

Steampunk Installation; Work in Progress, Pt. 2

Special thanks to my friends at FabLab for their help and patience as I set out to see how big of a laser cut I could make.
Answer: approx. 22″ x 34″.
I still smell like a Russian banya (sauna) from sitting next to the laser cutter for so long. Mm-mm, burnt birch goodness.
