Making of the Pixel Balloon. The upper left circle shows the board that the valves will eventually rest on. After the holes were drilled, glues was liberally applied to hold a white leather sheet. Upper right circle shows the limiters of the balloon, which were vacuumed formed, and glued together to form the 3 x 5 matrix the Pixel Balloon required to form letters. Lower left was the long and delicate process of soldering wires from valves to relays to teleo board to power source. Lower right show the lay out of the valves on the leather board.
