Hey! I got to First Base! Safe!
A little pun fun. This is an important step.
I had to make sure that the base structure was solid and secure to be safe. - And it is! I also had to make it easy to set up in a hurry – And it is. I also thought it would be nice for it to have interchangeable parts. – And it does! Above all, it has to be visually interesting. Otherwise what’s the point?
A big orange Industrial pallet, chopped in a jagged arc in back to blend with the circular arrangement with peers of various colors. A chunk of concrete joins base to a 6 ft smart phone frame into which will go objects and media.
Industrial? Yes! - Techy? Of course! – Primitive? Deliciously primitive!
Raised bolts mount the frame onto the concrete - Tilt is totally adjustable by via the four locknuts - A secret learned working as an eletrician’s apprentice back in my college days. That’s how we set lamp posts into the ground to ensure their stragihtness.
I heard about this guy who built a giant smart phone in his living room. Oh yeah, that was me!
What’s that? A petroglyph? What’s that guy saying about the cow he’s chasing?
Four more of these to come! I haven't yet started on the electronics! I need your help!
