Tara Donovan on the plastic-rod piece seen here, “There are steel armatures inside. You need forklifts and chain hoists to move them. We had to figure how we could make them and how we could lift them. There was a lot of problem-solving involved. I wouldn’t say it’s efficient to do these things. It takes an army and it takes time, because everything is hand-made. But the making is the reward.”
