Day 4 of 7 - Installation Nation

Today was beautiful and productive. I've been worried about the strength of my magnets and even with all the research I did in preparation, I still ended up hot gluing a corner of the magnet to the steel wall. I always feel safe with hot glue, she never lets me down. The drawings only weigh 1.5 lbs. and I got Neodymium magnets with a 20 lb. pull force, but there are so many variables that can come into play. Several of the magnets slowly slid down the walls in areas where there had been dents and damage. After the securing of magnets, drawings and labels went up and behold! electricity! So many variables effect an installation and the supplies at hand. Again with the preparedness. I brought a dozen light bulbs, you'd think I'd have the ones I want to use, but noooooo. So tomorrow I need to pick up some higher wattage and a three-way.
Every one at Primary Colours and the artists involved have been amazing and so kind and I'm excited to see what manifests in their containers by tomorrow night.
I have to find a carpet remnant, get some more cable to rig up my last curtain and do some electrical cord hiding, other than I'm good to go!


  1. Hey, nice work at Installation Nation. Your stuff is good and thoughtful art. Much appreciated by this Indianapolis downtown resident. Dunno how you got hooked up with the Primary Colours folks, but you and they put on a hell of a good show. It was art.

  2. It looks wonderful already!! Congrats on completing such a massive project!!
