Slowly I turned from 20th century blue collar fabricator to new millennium techy mad scientist. What if?…
A little pun fun. But really, this is an important step.
I had to make sure that the base structure was solid and secure to be safe. - And it is!
I also had to make it easy to set up in a hurry – like for a conference - And it is.
I also thought it would be nice for it to have interchangeable parts. – And it does!
Above all, it has to be visually interesting, in fact downright compelling. Otherwise what’s the point? This is art, right? I find it pretty striking. A big orange plastic Industrial pallet, chopped off in the back in a jagged semi-circular shape to blend with the circular arrangement of this unit with its peers (of various colors, btw). A chunk of concrete joining it to the 6 ft smart phone frame into which I will place interesting objects.
Industrial? Yes! - Techy? Of course! – Primitive? Deliciously primitive!
Raised bolts mount the frame onto the concrete - Tilt is totally adjustable by via the four locknuts - A secret learned working as an eletrician’s apprentice back in my college days. That’s how we set lamp posts into the ground to ensure their stragihtness.
I heard about this guy who built a giant smart phone in his living room. Oh yeah, that was me!
