Today was the first day of my artistic residency at the Digital Performance Institute. This morning, I cut the bracket pieces in the shop at DeBaun Auditorium, and then Kelly and I came into the city to buy the lumber I needed to make my drawing surface.

After an incident (!!!) involving the mirror in the lobby, I loaded my materials and the rope&pulley equipment into the space.

After dinner, I came back to assemble the drawing surface. Construction went smoothly, but I wish I had brought my carpenter’s square and level. I improvised using my digital caliper and hacked together a plumb bob with one of my wrenches so I could level out the support poles.

Tomorrow I’m going to set up the rope&pulley equipment and see if I can get it making some sound…
