Yes! The 2 walls are finished! For now some quick pictures from my phone. I will capture the project with more care at a later stage. It has been a crazy project. I designed the walls with the colors in illustrator. Making a random composition is tricky business as our eyes look for patterns in chaos automatically. I wanted to work with light colors in the top and dark colors at the bottom. Only dark or light colors would make the composition flat and dull. Ones the designs were set I bought me first saw and cut 6.000 blocks of wood during the heatwave in Amsterdam in my studio which was 35C. Standing in a bucket of water, wearing ear and eye protection and a mask 😷 . Once they where cut I started doing color tests to get the right colors and make gradients. I checked the designs and colored the blocks of wood exactly the way I put them in my design. Then I wrote down the order of blocks in which they needed to be placed on the wall according to my illustrator file, the blocks where stacked into towers of 6 and placed one by one directly on the walls surface. From Monday till Sunday I’ve worked 94 hours to get it installed. It’s done! ❤️
