Industrial Crafts

I work for an artist who's making a large-scale public art project involving a high-tech projection screen, and we're working on making the screen. It's extremely labor-intensive and requires a lot of different parts. Everyone's been coming up with cool ways to use the waste materials from the process. For my part, I used the backs of adhesive strips to make some quilled designs, and rolled discarded tape into stars. There's no good reference for the size of the stars, so they look just like paper, but they're actually very heavy, make a thunk when dropped, and I can hold maybe four in my hand at a time. They're really fun to play with, like marble balls or something.
