so, i have been working on the lobby of a construction firm
for the last little while. i originally suggested a series of 6 or 9
large, framed abstract photos taken on construction sites
for this wall of the lobby.
when the cost of framing turned out to be way over budget,
a collaborative meeting between myself, the vp of construction,
and the design/build manager, turned up a much more
interesting and cost effective method.
(one reason why i am a firm believer that collaboration with the
client always turns out a more personal, and unique solution!)
we ultimately decided to mount the photos on three panels of metal screening.
this metallic "screen" is used to separate rocks at the
company's rock pit. the photos will be sandwiched in between
wood and glass, and mounted to the screening with a bolt at each corner.
we will be using three different gauges
of the screen...the first panel will be the largest,
and the last will be the smallest,
with the medium in between.
i stopped in the office on friday, and the screens had been mounted.
i was super excited!
can you see the difference in the gauges of the screens now?
the vp and design/build manager have done a fabulous job of bringing
our design vision to a reality! check out those bolts that are holding the
VERY heavy screening to the wall. aren't they incredible?
as soon as the photos are mounted,
and the rest of the furniture is received,
i will share some more pictures with you.
