Monday, January 13, 2014

Today the final silhouettes were installed. In all, there are 50 silhouettes, four of these are inanimate objects, and three are fused double figures, making 48 life-sized human figures (and one super-sized turtle.) Thirty-three Tunxis participants are represented—twenty-nine students, two alumnae, the college president, and one faculty emeritus. Some of the participants are represented twice. Students were selected through an essay competition in which they were asked to discuss their journey to Tunxis Community College. There will be a website that will identify participants by their silhouettes and present their stories.

The silhouettes are made of 14-gauge stainless steel and are bolted to the wall with an average of 10 stainless-steel high-security machine screws.  Some of the ground-level silhouettes are backed by thicker stainless steel “bridge” pieces that allow them to pass over the wall molding. The silhouettes were laser cut by Labco Welding in Middletown, CT and contractor Anders Bachmann helped me with the installation. 

I'll post some more pictures in the next few days.
