On Monday day and then into the night, Order, Structure, Pattern #2 got pulled and snipped into its final shape. Yesterday the lighting was finished and today the work was finally open to the public along with the Leading Edge exhibition at the National Library of NZ. 2000 metres of rope and extension cord and 4000+ cable ties.
Here are some images of those final stages where I worked in the dark at the National Library – well, I had the lights on but it was me and the security guards and the podcasts.
and voila! This is not the actual view of the finished work as the black blinds have been lifted and you will be able to see through the work to the exhibition behind – further complicating the work. However, the audience will be able to navigate the work in the internal gallery where the view will vary and all will be revealed! More images to come soon as well as another time lapse.
