How to Build a Pyramid

Posted in MA Digital Media Arts by scannermobgravatar on February 10, 2010

Here are some photos documenting the construction of my piece for Beyond The Screen.

The plastic merchant, who was supposed to be building the pyramid for me, called to say he couldn’t get his machine repaired in time, so I decided to try and do it myself. The broken machine was going to be used to chamfer the edges so that they fit together neatly. I used a file to take the point off the edge I was working on and then used a metal ruler to shave a 45deg bevel.

It hasn’t turned out to be the neatest job, but I have tried it out with my Empire Détournement video and I am reasonably pleased with the result .
