Building event framing
I'm putting together a proposal for an outdoor art exhibit that requires some kinetic sculptures to be suspended in a public location and need some help figuring out what to do for the framing.
It is roughly cube shaped and needs to be 10'-12' (~3m) wide on each side and 8'-10' (~2.5m) high. It will support 4 sculptures that weight about 50 lbs (23 kg) and need electrical connections. It will be outside so there is a small chance of rain (I live in a desert). There is a possibility the ground won't be completely level or flat. I need it up for two weeks.
What I've looked at:
|Renting lighting truss||~$2000-3500||Easy assembly, strong, tried and true||Expensive, bulky|
|Wood||IDK ~$500||Cheaper, totally customizable||Need to build on site, gotta design structurally, doesn't look as good|
|Pipe||IDK $300-$1000?||Relatively easy assembly, easy to find||Gotta design, don't know how thick|
Anyone have any input? I figure I will need some corner bracing or diagonal elements on the top as it is a pretty big structure.
