Installation at Converge Denver: A Coworking Community of Creators
Rough Sketches for Wall Installation
I'm still thinking of using the doors for the panels, but instead one long wall, there would be two display panels. This makes sense on so many levels. First, I wouldn't have to span a long distance and the two walls would be more like a collection "container." I'm thinking it would be good if there was a frame that the doors would just slip into. It could minimize the amount of screws and time to assemble and disassemble. The whole thing would be about 8 feet tall and almost 8 feet wide. I like the squareness of those dimensions.
Door options. Natural wood or primed composite that would be painted. The key factor in choosing which type of door will be 1) how the paintings stand out against the natural wood coloring, or painted in which I can control exactly the contrast and color. And 2) if natural or painted furthers the concept of a "collection box."
Option for a nice looking way to hold up the two sides of the display frame. The frame could be screwed onto the "feet."
In this mock-up I am comparing two different finishes of the panels. On the left, a surface painted white or a light color, and on the right the panel left wood colors. The white background really allows the painting to stand out, but the natural surface feels more like a collection box and has a warmer feel to it. Note: This photo mock-up contains only a few of the paintings repeated as placeholders.
Completed installation with paintings and lights.
