Cutting into the Grid

I am very happy to announce that I have reached the next phase of my process – shaping the ends of the beams for the shape of the mesh. By fastening the ropes to the beams, I am able to visualize the curvature of the sculpture, giving me the ability to take a step back into the space. From there I can make adjustments to the line and climb into the grid to make the cut.

James Balkon and Dustin Meyer have been instrumental in helping me construct the wooden grid. We are very close to finishing this part of the process to construct Spire.
