14,000 Straws

Spring 2007 (Built)

Straws installation.

45,000 2” long straws, were taped together in 4’ long rows, attached to clear frames, with a total length of 15’ hung just inches from the ceiling. We wanted to change the lighting, and create an effect when looking through them.

Group members: John Bellisario, Anthony Lyman, Jeffrey Quantz (I helped design and build it)

Instructor: Mimi Locher
