Alright, so we have the platforms for the floor and the staircase built. Now it’s time to build the cloud of conduit pipe and gooseneck cable together around the staircase. It’s hard to describe in words how we were going to approach this, so let me just show you from where we started, to where we ended. For now.
The point we got to in January, pictured above, is not the final product. The organic nature of the exhibit allows itself to change every time we set it up. The twists and turns will not quite fit the exact same every time. This makes it rather stressful to strike, and then put back together. The exhibit was organized in a pie section system set up with a color key, number key and letter key that fits with the platforms, conduit pieces and the items the exhibit is presenting from various designs around America. The goal is to keep the shape of the cloud consistent each time we set up the exhibit.
To go into some depth of how the cloud was constructed, we used the three different diameters of bent conduit pipe, two varied sizes in different lengths of gooseneck cable and then smaller gauge wire to finish off the details.
We were happy to have a cloud to play in!
