flw, installation views, san jose museum of art, aug 2006
This installation requires a museum/gallery wall and includes two components:
The pedestal should be white, approx 30" high, about 2' x 2' square to hold the microscope. On it, we need to mount two 50w halogen lights so they point directly into the specimen tray. I have two white gooseneck halogen desklamps that I will bring, these are attached with c-clamps, see images.
Note: it is important that the microscope be securely mounted and that it be visible by museum guards who can explain that it's okay for visitors to adjust the optical eyepiece, but not to touch the lights (they get hot!) or to touch the silicon sample.
Insurance value approx $20,000.
