We’ve built a crane – out of truss.

Nick Todd designed a truss mother grid to support 25 massive verticle wooden poles installed into the Whitworth Art Gallery South Gallery space for Pascale Marthine Tayou’s installation that forms part of the forthcoming “We Face Forward” season of contemporary African art.  He also devised and built a special ‘crane’ made from slick minibeam trussing to raise the 200kg poles to the verticle prior to their attachment to the mother grid.  He was assisted on site by Chief Crane Driver Pete Isherwood, and Pete Robinson.
