This week Rick Lee has been installing his creation for the TECHstyleSoftWEAR: Surface & Shape installation.  I will see it today in person. Wow! It is so cool to see the idea take real form in the real space! He and his assistants really engineered the pieces in an elegant way...they created stitch like perforations in the aluminum so that the pieces bend along these fold lines. So elegant! I cannot wait to see Colleen's garments installed in the space. She is bringing the garments down today.

These pieces are suspended by cables which extend up throgh the ceiling tiles to load beams 11 feet about the dropped ceiling.

This is an intersesting shot to look at carefully. It really gives scale to the work and you can see four ladders and a hydrolic lift were involved to ge the pieces up!! So much goes into an installation behind the scenes.
