"If Six was Nine"
A sculptural installation of kinetic and stationary guitars by the artist Trimpin, featured in the Experience Music Project, Seattle.
Views of installation. My tasks involved designing the structure and devising a method to support approximately 700 guitars in this space. There are three clusters of guitars among these which are custom made by Trimpin to play his compositions.
A view from the upper level.
The frame consists of steel tubing around a central post. This permitted the sculpture to be assembled at the site. Custom brackets secure the guitars to this tubing.
The computer model I created to design this provided accurate cut lengths for fabrication.
