Recently we've moved onto working at the scale that the Archilace panels will be laced at, to work closer towards the finalised design. There are still some small things to tweek before we start on the final piece with the electroluminescent (EL) wire...but the patterns are really starting to become visible at large scale now. Eight panels slightly larger than the one photographed above will be stitched together to create the final piece!
I've also been getting my electric mindset back on again to prepare the EL wire for lacing, making sure that they can be wired up easily for animation once the lacing is finished. We will be using 256 bobbins and 4000 metres of EL wire to create the piece! An awful lot of bobbin making!!
