Venue & Connection Information

This holographic sculpture is suspended on an 18'x8'x12' frame. It should have room to be viewed from all sides. It is sensitive to ambient light, reflecting primarily from the light coil, so a controlled lighting environment is preferrable. Also, because it is lightweight, too much air, such as sudden gusts or kids kicking at it(not to be expected), would be harmful. It is not meant to be touched but I'd be happy to set up a "touch table".

Venue Considerations
  • Special Lighting needed: No
  • Internet needed: No
  • Indoor Space needed: Yes
  • Outdoor Space needed: No
  • Audio/Video needed: No
  • Electrical needed: Yes
