Hopscotch – “Spying” on pedestrians

Hopscotch – Installation Day 2 – Finished

Finally we got all the prints in and tucked into the grooves. This was probably the most challenging installation, physically and technically, that I have ever done. The wind and the heat truly put my abilities to the test.

Hopscotch – Color Matching

Oh, so many grays. Matching concrete and pavement grays is one of the most challenging color balancing acts. Here are some pictures of the more than a dozen trips to match my prints to the target environment.

It can get really windy downtown, so that is why I am often either standing on the samples or have tape rolls or rulers holding them in place.

The initial tests are done with my own printer, but this is using the final material used for the installation – AlumiGraphics Grip. I took segments of each square and I also made a test strip of solid concrete (seen on the side) to be able to make some educated guesses and final adjustments.

I got a little help that day.

Hopscotch – Testing the Materials at the Site – The City Hall, KCMO

I took some previously printed images to the site to test and practice my technique. I plan to tuck the sides in and around the corners to secure them. The size will be a challenge (each panel is 50″ x 50″ with an inch of extra to tuck in/trim). Also, several of the panels will span across three squares.
