As promised, a final group photo with the finished 'Big Bang' installation. Had a great 2 weeks with the gang assembling and overcoming design issues. Time to get lit up!

Very pleased with how the custom made joints have performed during the events period. The grub screws have held the struts in place securely, even whilst turning and rolling the entire frame. Big shout out to WEC Engineering and our fabricator Phil for producing these!

It's great to see the acrylic spheres catching the sunlight. We're all looking forward to how they catch and reflect the light when we have our lighting from dbn audile in place.

Great to see the UV and non UV cord simply disappearing into the center of the frame. After much deliberation of how to connect the cord in the center, the small carabiners have payed off massively!

Managed to get the installation all set and ready for the lighting experiments ahead of the final exhibition and festival dates. It's great to see the merging of our initial concepts to final outputs, along with the fantastic design input from the 1st & 2nd years! Group photo to follow....

Final Component Assembly!
The final design component consisting of 3 offset triangles to be housed in the top of the icosahedron frame went in today... Although by a happy accident, it ended up being slightly off center which allowed us to create a 3D effect of offset triangles pulling towards the center of our 'Big Bang'

Had some well spent time in the workshops with the first years over the events period. The acrylic spheres in particular have added another layer of texture to the overall image of the 'Big Bang' icosahedron.

Second to last piece of the puzzle!
The design workshops we introduced to the 1st and 2nd years over the course of the events week are now being put up into the overall frame.

Had the 1st years taking on some tasks in the wood workshop.
A number of acrylic spheres needed drilling to be placed on the network of strings in the icosahedron.
