Final Sewing and Structure Creation

Today, we finished sewing the last few rhombi together before creating the structure for this installation. We used piano wires to create two small circles of roughly 30cm diameter, and made one large circle of approximately 1.5m in diameter. The piano wires were attached with small pieces of metal that were clamped around the bent wires to create adjustable circles. We sewed the top and bottom to the smaller circles and then attached the larger ring to the outside of the structure around the ‘equator’ using fishing line. This created the bulb shape that we were after.
