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.
