    but you could sandwich the tissue between two pieces of contact paper if you prefer Mitchell created some circles with warm colors cool colors primary or secondary colors plus a few solid colored circles to rest your eye between all the busy patterns Since the display wasn t quite completed by the end of Mitchell s internship in August Studio work study students Emily and Sara helped with the final stages of the project when they returned to school in September Mitchell s original idea was to hang the circles vertically to flutter and move with the air but they were curling in the warm sunny windows so we needed to find a way to display them to prevent unwanted curling Sara and Emily designed a long flat wave pattern slightly overlapping them and connecting them together with more pieces of contact paper To give the circles some structure they outlined the wave with a metal wire armature all around the edges and a few bars across the piece We used OOK brand 18 gauge steel galvanized wire for the armature and paper clips hooked from the cross bars to hang from the ceiling The piece is hooked to a fishing line suspended between the heating elements on either ends of the ceiling We curved it slightly so that you could see the circles from many angles The fishing line gives it the appearance that it s floating like a colorful cloud The light streams through the tissue paper and makes a beautiful sun lit rainbow The rainbow compliments the large painted banners created by Eric Carle that we have hanging above our built in cabinets For even more display ideas to adapt to your space type Studio Display into the search bar at the top left of this page by Diana MacKenzie Tags studio display Mitchell Benedetti tissue paper transparency light color rainbow pattern geometric shapes Art Studio Internship Program This entry was posted on Monday September 29th 2014 at 6 00 am and is filed under Internship Program Displays Window Shades Light Paper Sculpture You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Cheri T says February 12 2016 at 1 14pm Were can I buy rolls of clear contact paper like show in this clip Nice width less waste for teen and kid projects Mail will not be published Cheri taglauer fairfieldsfuture org reply meghanb says February 12 2016 at 1 14pm Hi Cheri The roll pictured was donated to us by a teacher who had it given to her by an adhesives company I purchase contact paper for home projects at the Dollar Store Though it s not quite as crystal clear as the free roll we have
