Here’s where we are now.

Here’s where we were this morning when we got to the gallery. We were too tired last night to finish the last bit of woodwork, so we had about 10% still to go.

Lucky for us that Murray’s wonderful students from 3D Design and Creative Strategies showed up to pitch in. They helped us finish the wood, cleaned up the gallery, and even mopped for us. Every speck of sawdust had to be gone before we could start working with plastic. That plastic is like velcro: everything sticks to it.

The students also helped wrangle the plastic. At 20′x100′, this stuff is a nightmare to manipulate.

Tonight we finish wrapping the structure, then heat-shrink it. After that, we’ll attach the heat-shrunk flippers and hang the internal television. I picked up a gorgeous 1984 Goldstar TV from St Vincent’s today, and we’re going to hang it inside the whale’s ribcage.

Believe it or not, we’re right on schedule.
