The Water of Life Media/Worship/Communications Department from Water of Life Community Church in Fontana, CA brings us these string portal-like panels.
They wanted to take a new angle to string art by adding texture and multiple light angles. They backlit/inside lit the string with LED RGB tape, then had multiple standard house rig moving head washes and LED pars light the string from the front and the side as well.
The frames were all made of 2×4 stock lumber, and the flown pieces had metal rigging points added to them for structure and safety. They painted the wood frames black to get them to disappear against their backdrop.
Each frame was made up of a few LED tape strips, so each frame had multiple zone lighting control with DMX decoders, but done much less expensively than pixel tape.
The string was a thick twine from a construction supply house, and each strand was woven throughout the frame over black drywall screws on the front face of the frame. They used over 15,000 ft of twine in total.
