Stairwell project: enlarged collage installation

After the original collages were completed, they were photographed at very high resolution for enlargement at Nocerino Editions. I prepared half scale digital files with the images in position. Then the images were output by Eye Candy Graphics onto a material that would cling to the still-somewhat-rough concrete walls of the stairwell via a heat process. Here are some photos of the collages being applied to the walls. The high gloss of the material created unexpectedly big highlight flares under the installed lights so a dulling coat was applied on top of the images after all the enlargements were installed.

They’re HUGE compared to what I’ve been working with in the studio! But I was very happy to see that the standpipe mostly disappeared in the wildness of the overall image. Also notice that the speaker for sound has now been installed. Still to come, floor coverings, wall paint and sound.
