Hell and Heaven, July 3

Today I started by making ink drawings for the piece. I am considering whether I want to incorporate the straight edges of the sheet metal. I made lots of 4″x8″ and 4″x4″ sheets of paper as 1″=1′ scale mockups for the art. As I drew I made simple variations of a theme, considering what makes a dynamic atlantic pharmacy line — why some gestural drawings are more compelling than others. I also realized I could make faceted domes with mirrored arcs. So then I started fooling around in Photoshop to see which shapes could fit the size of sheet with enough cutouts, and made models out of card stock.
