Over sized chain link accessories inspired students to develop this highly reflective monochromatic window display. The window is loaded with texture and shine thanks to eighteen strategically placed security mirrors that reflected six hundred feet of chrome coated plastic chain.

Challenges faced

Suspending real chain in the window was our first and most obvious option. We quickly discovered that the weight of the amount of chain that we wanted to suspend could probably take down our ceiling grid and cause a work hazard so we searched on line for a plastic alternative that still looked like real chain. Finding this alternative made the install relatively quick. Enough students and enough step ladders to suspend each of the 72 chains was key. The security mirrors provided a reflective quality to make it appear as though we had purchased double the amount of chain.

Attention getters: repetition, mirrors, colour, props
