He said do it.
I started by making the clouds.
The structure is a cardboard like grid that is used in packaging. The tissue paper was collected at Forever 21, where I work - usually it all gets thrown away. Alex helped, too!
We were weving the tissue into the support, and taping the back. This was a very long process and after 2 hours - this was all that Alex and I had accomplished...
To save time, we would just have to hot-clue the tissue and coffee filters to the support. Cody and I worked on making one other strip like in the picutre above, after we finished the first one. Last night, Courtney and Erin, who work with me, came over to Cody's and we had drinks, pizza and worked on some more clouds.
Today, we actually got to be inside the window to install.
We started construction with the skeleton of the cloud. We used the same packaging material for this part of the installation.
Then we added, piece by piece, the collaged tissues sections to the skeleton.
We filled holes with white trash bags and bubble wrap. In order to give the cloud more luminosity, we added lights.
Last, we added the cherub and the mannequins. Return to see the finish look - I wanted to wait until it was dark to get a good overall picture.
