We were able to travel a bit before we started to get to work on the rig and will be sharing more pictures on our website and Facebook pages. For now, here is an introductory taste of some of things we got to see and work on!
This is a shot of the Dead Sea. At 423 meters below sea level, it is the lowest place on earth. The name comes from the fact that it is one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world, it is 8.6 times saltier than the oceans, and no animal can live in it's environment. One other fun fact, people cannot sink in the Dead Sea - we all just float because of the denseness of the water from the salt.
After we floated out of the Dead Sea, we continued our travels into Jerusalem. The photo above is of the Garden of Gethsemani, which is a place located on the Mount of Olives. The garden now features beautiful landscaping, however the olive trees that are seen here are over 2000 years old.
Night time view of part of Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv is open 24 hours a day, known as the "city that never sleeps". It is also renowned for it's miles and miles of beautiful beaches on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
Ha Tachana, the site of the venue, was one block from the Mediterranean Sea. So most of the crew would have lunch on the beach.
Here is the venue before we started the transformation into the exhibit. This building is known as Hanger 20 on the grounds of Ha Tachana.
Day two into the install and the truss structure is up and ready for the lighting hang.
This shot shows the rig coming together in the front half of the exhibition. All specimens, descriptions and signs were all lit for visibility of the guests. We used several different types of fixtures to light the exhibition. All served their own specific purpose of lighting specific elements of the exhibition.
That's all we can show you here. If you are abroad and would like to see the exhibition, more information can be found here. If you would like more information or would like to see a Bodies...The Exhibition here stateside visit their website for current show locations.
