To create this set they purchased 6mil plastic rolls and cut them into 2′ squares. To remove the creases from the plastic, they steamed each square with a steamer. This also added a cool texture. Next, they grommeted the squares and crinkled them up for more texture. They used 3″ binder rings which can be purchased from school suppliers to connect the tiles together.
To light the set they used LEDs (a mix of Color Blasts and Elation TriBrick 36s) to warm the truss, and Ocean Optics Seachangers to light the tiles.
