Light Wings

Jeff Abbott from Ada Bible Church in Grand Rapids, MI brings us this awesome use of lines and shapes.

This set was designed to take advantage of negative space. The pieces were designed so that the interior cut as well as the spacing between the panels created the negative space that light would shine through from behind.

This set required precision construction so all the parts would line up properly and create the desired effect. Construction materiel was Luan. All parts were CNC cut from 4×8 sheets. All parts were painted Grey or White. Jeff had connecting brackets laser cut from steel at a local fabrication shop to connect all the panels together. To create additional depth, the front most pieces of the set, forming the “X” pattern were spaced off the panel using 1″ nylon spaces.

The panels they suspended about 8 inches off the wall. White Coroplast was placed behind the panels to reflect the up lighting better. Omez Bar Lights they used to up light from behind the set.

They were able to create some great looks utilizing the up lights from behind and lighting from the front.
