“Adjacent” Studio Process: Step 2

Preparing the Studio

Luckily I was able to sub-let a nearby studio/warehouse space quickly, and only for the required three months of the project construction. With scheduled unveiling July 1st, a typical one-year lease was impractical and unnecessary. The space needed to have a roll-up door of adequate size and be on the ground floor to facilitate access by fork-lift to move the large moulds that we’ll be constructing. Preparation of the space began by installing lighting and then moving in all the requisite paraphernalia of such a construction project. Immediately I began construction of the first stiff back, the rigid framework upon which the first mold would be built, leveled and shipped. Such a form is a typical first step in much boatbuilding, which it turns out this project will have much in common with.
