560 eyelets for a common goal
This week also our canvas has returned. For the attachment and tension of the huge canvas it had to be lined and “öst”. Many field tests were necessary. This was preceded by discussions with experts and test setups until we found a solution for the flexible screen attachment. Conventional methods were not practicable due to the image size and requirements. Now the screen is held with 560 eyelets. They had to be attached manually. Each eyelet was underlaid with a truck tarpaulin so that the screen would not tear out during stretching and drying. A short film report can be found here:
In the next step, the vision screen is connected to the frame and prestressed.
