A reflective mylar installation for the 2017 Henry Gala. With an event entitled the "Mercury Ball" we went through several iterations of ideas, attempting at first to make our own massive mylar balloons before discovering that "mylar" balloons aren't made from mylar at all and the material used to create balloons is extremely hard to come by. We eventually settled on a non-inflated design using wooden dowels, reflective mylar and fishing line. We mass produced around 100 equilateral triangles in sizes ranging from 1ft to 3ft.
