i was thinking about this the other day while i was in the...well...place where i do all my best thinking - and wondering when our next update would be.
this turned out to be such a great project. i cannot imagine the frustration along the way with fitting all the parts together - especially as they weren't designed to work as a team. but your perseverance is astounding! technical skill and lack of quit are amazing to see.
it looks like nothing i've seen and walks that fine line between weirdly odd looking and stunningly beautiful - i spend a lot of time on that line myself.
congrats and hope you get to stare at it for a long time to come.
really great job!!!
