Lighting in Progress . . .

Arranging lighting for the Institute of Crazyology. Ron Halbert and Maitland figuring it out. That’s an Asmat tribal war shield on the wall. With the uplighting the relief in the carving really pops beautifully.

Ron Halbert experiments with LED uplight as Maitland considers the effect.

On Saturday we will move the cat bases into place and on Sunday we will stand the Catoliths on their bases.

We’re making solid progress at the Institute of Crazyology, and if you like what you see then please don’t hesitate to support the effort:

We’ve raised $600. so far, and we’re very grateful for the support.

Updated 3D Viz for Cathenge at Crazyology

These renders show Cathenge in its definite placement within the Institute. The hall is composed of 6 squares defined by the spacing of the pillars as well as the tile work. There are six cats to center naturally in these six squares.

The renders also show the deployment of the platform triangles into 3 separate two tiered triangular stages. Twelve of the 24 platform triangles made by Andrew Spalding were loaded into the Institute, and all that’s needed is to place them and put legs on them as seen here (and I think I have just enough 4x4s for the legs).
