Here's a nice slideshow of pictures from today out at Pendarvis Farm. Pickathon 2012 is a mere 4 days away, this is a glimpse from the grounds as we help transform this amazing space. Enjoy!
Pickathon 2012 is just days away folks!
We are excited and in full on production mode, indeed, our crew essentially will be installing and helping in coordinating these grounds from sunrise 'till sunset, right up until Thursday so that by Friday we'll be ready for doors. This installation requires over 175,000 square feet of architectural fabric that has all been specifically designed for this event!
This installation is truly a complex and sometimes mind bogglingly intricate dance of fabrics, ropes, and lots and lots of knots. We have 8, 50ft Boom lifts to help us navigate the grounds and get to the heights needed to tie off these fabric pieces high up in the air. It has been incredible to be out here and see what actually goes into all of this production. The field, where we have been primarily focused on up to this point is only one of the many places we add our architectural fabric structures. We also have installed several large bamboo structures throughout the grounds and those will also have fabrics tensioned off of them as well. The magnitude and complexity of this project is absolutely amazing, we are now 6 days away from the beginning of this festival and to think that all that is here and installed (and will be installed over these last 6 days) wasn't here a mere two weeks ago is incredible.
Thank you for visiting and seeing where we're at with this glorious installation, please check back over the next several days leading up to Pickathon 2012 for more pictures, time-lapse videos, and more!
