Manta's Revenge

Finally a break in the action so there's time to blog again. Our tech project- an installation on Hollywood Boulevard Memorial Day weekend- carries over in to the next quarter so the review was more of progress check rather than a project wrapup. Both groups in this class have a permanent staging area in the shop to produce mockups and prototypes. Our mockup for the review was fairly successful considering how few physical tests we have done. The basic unit is called a manta for its obvious resemblance. The window is filled with a lattice of these mantas with twist in the lattice occurring towards the back of the window to create a focus towards the entrance in to the theater.
