I promised the misdirections and inevitable problems. Hanging the medallions was a somewhat trying case-in-point.
So I took a few days trying to address the problem from various alternate conceptual views. At the juncture below, I had taken 6 strings and marked them forward and backward with the Fibonacci sequence (2, 2, 4, 6, 10, 16, 26, 42 // 42, 26, 16, 10, 6, 4, 2, 2) and spent an afternoon playing around with various curves, cascading placements, spiral- or centrally- emitting patterns. Achieving an effect pleasing from all angles was hampered by the pallette-to-medallion ratio. If the medallions were smaller, I would have had more flexibility to create enough iterative levels to make something work.
And, of course, given the size of the piece, this entire exercise required lots of standing WAAAY in close, adjusting medallions, then another hour or two sitting on the couch and walking back and forth through the room.
This does not give you the sense of what it’s like to walk BY it. I’ll see what I can do to give you the feel of being up next to it.
