Sep '04 - Aug '08
Wednesday morning we had our final reviews, which went fairly well considering the minimal amount of time I spent on studio. At 5pm that day we started working in the shop to finish up some last minute fabrication for the Swedish project. At 3am I went to logan and rented a mini van which we packed up with the remaining materials and drove to NYC arriving around 8am. By 3pm we had finished assembling the 10 4'x16' bays of polycarbonate panels and began lifting them. Seventeen hours of straight work later and we raised the final panel into place. So much pain. More of an actual description of things once I'm a bit less of a zombie.
GAC was kind enough to come and document the assembly process a little bit. His photos are much better than mine, but only these two are online.
Assembled bay visible standing on end in the distance.
We assembled most of it at 3-7' off the floor before raising it to the final height of 7-11'.
Worked even when the lights went out at 1am...

In addition to the cloud hanging above the floor we designed a corner wall to hold the logo for the booth and a series of pedestals as depicted here.
