Working off a wooden grid template

The next phase in the installation of Untitled (Basin and Range) at MOCA Tucson is to construct a grid based on a template that Henry and I have created measuring 18 feet 6 inches by 24 feet with a three foot square gap between beams. This template helps us outline the wooden grid structure for each individual mountain range. There will be five mountain ranges in total as we start with #1 and move clockwise until we reach range #5 which will sit outside the building.

Unlike my previous projects, Allotropisms and Spire, that were both built from the top down, Basin and Range is being first assembled horizontally and then flipped onto its vertical axis.
