This evening–during a regular BCL group meeting–Hiba, Kevin, and I made a one-off miniature version of the retroreflective CAFKA text installation happening this fall. This miniature is about 7 inches tall, a roughly 1:14 scale model of our proposed text installation. The best part about it is we made the entire thing in about 2-3 hours!
First we traced our uppercase letters onto a nice sheet of masonite. We then covered the backside of the masonite in a sheet of retroreflective material. This way we could use a bandsaw to cut the masonite and reflective material at the same time.
