Long story short: Kate Vrijmoet and myself won Best Installation for the show!
Photos of the Word Wall lit up. The LED strips are working in the full upper half!
Drilling & tapping the waterjet cut front panels, cutting and drilling the buttons for the Word Wall
Testing out variations of the LED lighting strips to see how close together they should be to get good color and fill.
This is the aluminum fresh from the waterjet company. Looks amazing!
Update on my progress with the design of the Word Wall.
I have the front panel design almost complete to send to be waterjet cut tomorrow for my interactive Word Wall project!
