Sculpture progress

Progress has gone well in fabricating the sculpture frame for The Machine of Awesome Bright Liquid Blueness. Constructed mostly out of 1/4"thick aluminum, the frame also acts as a heat sync for the LED's. The piece is almost 35" in diameter and 7-9" deep.

I want to thank Zeeshan for machining the pieces needed to install the water bottle refilling unit, as well as arranging the water jet cutting of the back plate, outer ring, and the LED curved plate. As well as Mark for finishing off the tig welding. I was able to cut the LED curved plate by hand in order to fit it inside the outer ring and the polycarbonate cover will also be hand moulded and cut.

Next I will start to map and install the plumbing and Tim will be coming in and we will start laying in the strips of 144/meter led strips.
