I took the train across country to Pittsburgh, PA to start grad. school at Carnegie Mellon. I got an amazing studio space. I spent a while setting it up so that I could have a lot of room and move things around.
Check out the stowable sawhorse tables and the flat file I saved from the scrap heap. As well my grandpa’s work bench.
In these images I am rebuilding the I.O.P. I.E.D. scaffold. I really like the modularity of this structure. It’s made of threaded rod and aluminum “C” sections from old computer server racks. The fact that they’re aluminum means I can easily drill new holes in the material. The threaded rod makes tiny adjustments as well as large changes really easy. This is essential for the purpose of these scaffolds: holding glass plates in preparation for being exploded onto.
