Way back in March there was a spark of an idea while wandering around the Getty.. which suddenly turned into an all-nighter.. and then 5 month long project with more planning and calculating than we had anticipated.
The results of that first all-nighter with maya and kinkos:
We then projected our prototype onto vinyl sheets, cut it out and tested it in my living room. I painted it after a little maya design planning.
and painstakingly started hanging each piece with fishing line and a variety of clips. More math and precision was needed than you'll ever care to know... and clip weight on those little tail pieces... again, easier said than done.
then, as if we hadn't tortured ourselves enough we decided it really needed something else to it.. like a fish helix.

and there's no better way to celebrate finishing a project than with sparklers!
