Yungbin and I tested a new fixture with the mylar tonight. We cut the mylar to fit the top and put a Phillips Silhouette F21T5/830 inside the cart. By reducing the wattage from our test last week from 39W to 21W we think the new light gives the bar a nice glow. We have 2 ballasts for this fixture in the light lab which is only enough for our bar (2carts wide) at the far end of Donghia Gallery. We think that a bar inside the space will need a less intense light. See photos below of our mockup tonight:

Yungbin, Patricia and I put together the attached document which includes a plan and some additional testing we did with the existing donghia gallery curtains. We wanted to heighten the experience of the glass wall by covering up the drinking fountain/exit signs/ restroom doors and tailor the circulation space along the glass wall. We can demonstrate on Wednesday!

Here is an aerial view of the museum
Rome-based artist Carlo Bernardini creates environmental, abstract fiber optic installations based on rhomboidal or triangular forms. The lights come together as three-dimensional shapes when you stand at a certain vantage point.
