Aerial Sculpture: My goal, to conceive, define, fabricate, and install a new breed of modern atrium aerial sculpture. Personally researched and developed a new and higher standard for suspension cabling ( W.B.S.S.), integrated mechanical bracketing , construction processes, expanded choice of materials ( Aluminum) and attachment hardware , thus the introduction of artists collaborating with engineers . Previous standard was nylon fishing line.
Researched and developed an applied primer for Aluminum so
P.P.G paints would permanently adhere to any aluminum object. Previous standard: no primers
