Before I can dive deep into this installation, I need to work out a few problems.
1. How to hang the wire elements from a concrete ceiling. Drilling holes for anchoring would be very difficult and nasty, and would ruin the ceiling- not an option.
2. In addition, the ceilings have 8 double concrete beams that run across the room. The space between the beams varies.
Small tension rods would be optimal. After a few hours at a hardware store, I have decided that a small wedge of PC-Crete between the cracks will work best and will be the easiest to remove when the project is finished.
3. How can I safely reach the 12’ ceiling. My current ladder is not tall enough. I was lucky to find a little Giant ladder on sale at Lowes.
The little giant is a LOT of ladder, and I am not going to step on it until I watch a YouTube video and thoroughly and read the instructions.

The ladder is back a Lowes and Aztec has rented me this small scaffold for 2days. Onward!
