This split-flap display board was created for a performance project called "Dearly Departures", created by choreographer Blake Beckham and presented by The Lucky Penny in Atlanta, GA. An industrious team of artists, makers and engineers came together to design and fabricate this split-flap board from scratch. Here you see our 16-unit prototype. The final display is 64 units, created at The Workshop - an Inman Park Arts Center. Come see the sign in performance! "Dearly Departures" premieres July 24-August 2, 2014. More at theluckypenny.org.
