John McAlister our Director of Information Technology reports:
On Friday we went live with a new Sol LeWitt wall drawing segment on our website (in “Beta” format meaning the permanent web presence will come at a later time). We want to share the progress and give a sneak peak into the process of making these magnificent drawings.
There are two ways to see the wall drawings on the websiteâ€”in a grid layout or via a floor plan of Building 7 (where the wall drawings are being created). The grid offers you a matrix of thumbnails so you can go directly into the detail of the drawing. The floor plan breaks out the three floors of Building 7 so you can see their physical placement throughout the retrospective. Remember there are a total of approximately 27,000 square feet that house the wall drawings or 9,000 square feet per floor! Once into the detail page look for a time lapse video capturing the making of certain wall drawings. Spectacular! (Note: not all the drawings are being captured but a good sample is underway.) Of course to find out more about this great endeavor please visit the About page.
Iâ€™d like to personally thank Jack Turner and Adam Grossman for their brilliant technological wizardry in putting together the website and the capturing/editing of the time lapse videos. Check them out at http://jackadam.net/.
