Crowded. Really crowded.
For the Detroit hotel project, we created a scale model for the client. We had the shapes created by a local 3D-printing fabricator (which kinda makes us want a 3D printer...). Then Matt spent a good chunk of time hanging, balancing, and refining the model. Then he spent another chunk of time figuring out how to safely ship it! The good news is that it made it safely to the client. Phew!
We've got a crazy-busy summer ahead. Here's one of the projects in our queue. It's a 42 foot tall mobile made of fabric stretched over metal frames (kind of like our White Ribbons project from many moons ago). Se'll try to squeeze in time to share updates, so stay tuned!
We've mentioned a few times that we've been working on a cloud-inspired ceiling sculpture for the atrium of North Carolina hospital. We're happy to report that it's all installed. Matt and Ben travelled to the East Coast last week for the installation, and they worked through the night, completing the installation at about 4:30 a.m.
Matt woke up later that morning to this happy text from the client: "The mobile is amazing. I knew it was going to be special but it is beyond that. I am truly speechless. Thank you is not enough!"
Shucks. That kind of feedback makes mobile making totally worth the sleepless nights.
