Jeff Abbott from Ada Bible Church in Grand Rapids, MI brings us this stack of mixed medium.
Jeff’s goal was to use several different textures to reflect the light differently…and to use the 4×8 panel sections themselves to create a “bigger” pattern across their stage. He also wanted to create something that could serve as a stand alone “art piece” when not lit.
The panels were constructed from 2×2’s, Coroplast (white) & 1/4″ threaded rod. There were 10 different smaller panels on each 4×8 panel. The smaller panels were all at different heights from the base, increasing the shadows cast and adding to the depth of the piece. The different textures used were: Burlap, 2 different florescent light covers, wrinkled screen, 2 colors of paint & a metal gutter cover. The small panel sections were held in place with nuts, washers and zip ties. The panels were lit from 2 directions with LED’s. The large center panels were left white and one of the lights focused on it to give a strong color blast in the middle of each 4×8 panel.
Each 4×8 panel cost around $120 each and uses 1-1/2 sheets of Coroplast. They had the panels installed in their large auditorium and in their smaller venues that do not use theatrical lighting. One panel on each side of the platform looks great.
As usual, if someone would like a copy of the design, please email Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
