Direct Supply 30th Anniversary LED Sculpture
Client: Direct Supply
Media: Water-jet cut aluminum panels with brushed finish, dichroic film on acrylic, LED fixtures
Date: September 2015
Project: Create a 30th Anniversary Celebration Piece that honored the Direct Supply brand and its employees.
Challenges: Lots of data coordination and complex production in a very short timeframe
Solutions: We gathered the signatures of each of the 1200+ employees of Direct Supply and organized them chronologically from left to right on the piece. Each signature was laser-etched into dichroic (color changing) film and placed within a rectangular perforation of water-jet cut aluminum panels. We arranged the dichroic pattern to form a subtle number ‘30’ visible to varrying degrees as one circumambulates the piece.
Pieces Created: 30-foot LED-lit sculpture for Direct Supply’s 30th Anniversary Party
