Whew. Matt and Ben just finished installing a Red Thread ceiling sculpture at Pueblo Community College in Colorado, and it was intense.
The sculpture hangs from the center of a large rotunda with a 50-ish-foot ceiling. Anchoring to the ceiling wasn’t ideal for various reasons, so they strung cables across the rotunda, attaching them to support trusses.
Once the support cables were in place, the shapes were each hung in their proper position—which sounds easier than it actually is.
The installation took an arduous 24 hours, but we’re happy with the end results. It’s fun to see how different the sculpture looks from every vantage point. (And don’t you love that last shot from below!?)
