Warehouse Installation Images - Part 1: Installing

Many thanks to everyone who helped out with installing the second part of the I am Ai, We are Ai Project!  Thanks to all of you it turned out beautifully!

The Bandai Warehouse before installation started.

A wire grid was stretched across the space and s-hooks were added to suspend the cloth.

The cloth was arranged to create an even distribution of color so that each color could be appreciated on its own while also creating a cohesive whole to reflect the individuals who comprise the tradition of Awa Indigo.

Strings were measured and stitched to each corner to suspend the cloths from the wire grid.  The installation was truly a group effort and never would have happened without the help of many volunteers including this group of students from Shikoku University.
Once the strings were attached, the cloth was hung from the wire grid.

Again, many thanks to everyone who helped with the installation!  Shikoku University students helping to hang the cloth panels from the wire grid.
