Sheridan college commission
I apologize for the poopie cell phone photos, but I thought I'd do a little post about the commission I'm working on. I mentioned it without photos about a month ago. Anyways, yesterday Natalie (one of my classmates who designed wallpaper for a "nook" at the college) and I went to check out the spaces where our work will be placed. The new campus is literally right beside Square One, and is still under major construction.
Anyways, the first photo is of my proposal, with samples of the knit elements and possible colours for the felt I will use for the panels.
The second photo shows where the piece will be located. It should start around the base of the second floor, and go up to the base of the third floor. The final measurements will be around 5' wide by 20-24' long. Lots. Of. Knitting. And the third photo shows how the atrium goes up many more stories. Iryna, the Sheridan rep who's been coordinating all of this, informed me that perhaps the college would want to commission me to add to the knit vertical garden every year, until it reaches up to the ceiling. WHOA.
Combined with wedding planning, other big exciting planning (oooh, mysterious...will reveal soon), and life in general, this project is sort of stressing me out. But it's ok. I'm sure it'll work out in the end.
