Tidal River Installation, Day 1

This was the day I had been waiting for: installation of my project at the new public library.  Shortly after 10am the crew had the scaffolding and all the necessary tools in place, and got started.

The first silk organza panel being leveled.  They hang on aluminum rods suspended on thin steel cables which are threaded thru eye-screws fastened to the ceiling.
The wall above the circulation desk is curved and the ceiling slopes, making measurements tricky and time consuming.

The second panel going up.

Watching the boys way up there was very nerve wracking!

By 3pm, 7 of the 12 panels were up and we have a sure shot at completing the installation tomorrow.  Please join me for Part Two and the finale in my next post.


  1. Impressive! This is a page turner!

  2. WOWZER ... I'm so excited for you, how entirely awesome!
    And I'm with Suzanna on the page turner aspect - can't wait!!

  4. good grief sus, my nerves are wracked just looking at the pics!! but this is so cool... : )


  5. Ahhh Sus ! this is looking so GOOD !
    (I can imagine it isn't fun to look up how others are coping with your work )

    The building looks very special b.t.w. .... and your art work adds another
    beautiful dimension to it ;-)

  6. Impressive, Sus. Can't wait to see it in person. It's certainly going to make our new library all the more inviting.

  7. installations are almost always a LOT of work.
