David Bales provides creative technical support to artists, architects and engineers.
(Which is good because we're meeting with TriMet's engineer today at 2!)
Bales redesigned the metal housing for my TriMet carving to be stronger, simpler to fabricate
while maintaining all the important visual aspects.
Instead of peaked, the roof is now one flat plane which reduces the possibilities of leaks,
and uses only one piece of clear plastic makes installation much easier.
It's fun to see his computer models and actually see different views of how the sculpture will look.
