Norwegian Puppet Show Set - Process Photos
Here are some process photos of a set I built for a Norwegian Art/Puppet Show. It was inspired by traditional Norwegian Stabbur design, although due to working with such a small budget, I had to simplify the design from our initial inspiration photo. For the most part, I built this entire structure myself in about 36 hours total build time, occasionally getting help from one of the artist's brother to make some cuts. The internal framework is pretty standard for how you would build a shed or barn.
We were actually invited to rebuild the structure at Viking Fest taking place in Brooklyn next Saturday, so hopefully that all works out.
The structure pushed the limits of the gallery at being just shy of 12ft tall and the top floor being around 10ftX10ft wide.
