Our involvement with the fabrication process gave us great insight into the fundamental construction of the artwork. During final installation, this insight was invaluable. Constantine KSA ensured that fabrication exactly aligned with a busy shipping schedule and display deadline.
From Spark to Spirit, a celebration of light and colour, invited the use of challenging materials such as glass and electrical components. As such, our logistics teams had to utilise their comprehensive experience of handling fragile materials to create bespoke packing solutions.
Phillip K Smith III’s Flat Portal 4:1, constructed from fibreglass, LEDs and electrical fittings, required such treatment. To safely handle the large glass disk, Constantine KSA facilitated the fabrication of a custom Styrofoam cradle alongside the artist. The cradle successfully supported the artwork during the packing process whilst also being reused inside the crate for transit and installation.
Due to the size of Flat Portal 4:1, the constructed crate was over 230cm high. To ensure the safest possible transit, stabilisers were added to the base of the case, minimising any lateral motion.
