This is part three of the MMAF blog post,
also known as Rockwell Tent Exhibit: Production
AGAIN, NONE OF THESE PHOTOS ARE MINE!
This post includes photos from Sir Rob, Maysie, Kevin, and maybe Rein!
Production was spent at my old house in Greenhills -
where we spent A LOT of our time for the last weeks of PORTFOL.
Buti nalang I was done with most of my subjects and didn't have to go to Taft much!
These are acrylic glass traingles that we covered in red cellophane.
(Colored acrylic glass is much too expensive - and we didn't need a lot)
After they'd dry, the others would turn them into pyramids -
these things were what we put inside our installation!
(Anything involving a cutter is fun for Ana)
Comparing a piece of yema to the triangles we were making
(O DIBA MUKHANG YEMA)
This is what the finished pyramids looked like!
Some of them aren't exactly pyramids, because we tried
to work with different kinds of shapes!
OH! And the acrylic glass triangles were obviously made by Sir Xu Wei, Master Cutter
While the class worked on the triangles, our carpenters Matias and Sam
were making our base! (The design + look + measurements + everything
of our installation was designed by John!)
The finished base!
Matias and Sam cut the acrylic sheets down the middle to make
2 ft x 6 ft walls - tapos they insterted wooden frames on the sides so that
they wouldn't fall over and slice someone once we made them stand
That's what they looked like standing up!
(We kept the wrapping on the acrylic glass this time so that
we'd be sure to keep it safe from scratches nyehehe)
Tapos Rein knew people who could build our mirrors for us,
kaya when she brought them over to the house, John and Zac immediately
tried to fit the mirrors into the base! (HEHE HELLO SIR ROB)
Zac gluing the mirrors in place
And theeeen, we attached a center light in the base and covered it with the pyramids!
BLAH BLAH BLAH FAST FORWARD BIGLANG INGRESS NA!
Everyone finalized the installation as much as they could until 3AM
on the night before the exhibit, and then they began to carry out the whole thing!
(HAHA they actually broke one of the mirrors in the process,
but the crack wasn't big enough to ruin anything.)
And then POOF we were at Rockwell by around 3:30AM!
Setting up everywhere, measuring stuff, spray painting, last minute additions, etc etc etc
Ang kalat ng background, guys!!!
Nyehehehehe meet some of the people in DMA8!
(Don't worry, wala dito yung mga ayaw ko!)
Fun fact! I am holding out a beetle in this photo - Xu Wei found it in the garden
and gave it to me right before Kevin took the photo!
CHENEN! The installation right before opening!
Errr I'm not exactly sure if this WAS taken on the opening day, but this is
what the installation really looked like before we opened the doors to the public :-))
