Space Planning for DPI Residency

I’m preparing for my residency at the Digital Performance Institute and have been working up some ideas of how I will use the space.  One of the challenges of working in this space will be the drawing surface; I don’t have a blank wall to hang my paper on.  After sketching a bit, one solution I’m considering is using a roll of seamless background paper mounted on a pipe above a 4′x8′ sheet of plywood which is attached to Auto Poles with some Super Clamps

A 3/4″ thick sheet of 4′x’8 plywood weighs approximately 75lbs (or 34.02kg).  A Manfrotto Super Clamp is rated to hold 15kg, so I figure that a clamp at each corner of the plywood (along with some simple adapter hardward) should be able to hold 60kg.
