Pier 14 Soma install, day 2

Another long day of hard work down on the Bay’s edge today… did it go 100% smoothly, without a single hitch? …mmmmmm, almost! And our minor setbacks will mature into hilarious stories, once this thing is all bolted together and we step back to see it all complete. Until then though… we have more typical installation problems to solve… here’s what Day 2 looked like:

lots going on here… in the foreground is the future wooden platform that will surround the piece. meanwhile, Margaret is lowering the axon into its nook between the nuclei.

permit!

THIS IS THE PERMIT that allows us to finally be doing this installation, as modeled by Denise, Pouneh, Mills and Lance. we immediately marked it with pink tape, our signature proprietary color.

over-the-top enthusiasm, while guiding this dodecahedron to its home.

Mills and Denise in the boom lift, after triumphantly getting the last bolt into the last hole and finally securing the axon into its home between the dodecahedron nuclei. victory!

Josh riding the boom lift like a cowboy... giving the axon a little massage.
