    Default School Art Installation Project

    I posted a question back in the beginning of November asking about cutting down milling times for 23/32 plywood. I was told to purchase a table saw instead of bothering with the CNC. Anyway long story short, the Installation project is complete and just in time, also CNC worked flawlessly (mostly.)

    A little about the project.

    Upon returning from our trip to Texas and the Big Bend National Park, we got the opportunity to design and build an exhibit based on ideas from our trip. Words and ideas that were thrown around during the trip and during conceptual phases were:

    Horizon
    Scale / Scalessness
    Density

    These ideas / words were carried through the design process and brought to a reality which is this project. The purpose was to re introduce the horizon to the city of Boston through the density of the members, as well as create an idea of scalelessness (could be trees or could be grass).
    The members range from 9",1'6" and 3' apart; as well as a height change from 9' to 19'. The profiling of the members at eye level allow a horizon to appear especially at the most dense area. (This profile was the reason the table saw idea would be just as much a pain as the CNC cutting times.) Each member is also engraved with a number to identify its location on the grid we designed.

    152 045 (152) = height 15'2" (045) = number on the grid

    255 being the last member


    Here are a few images of the final installation
