When I started working at ImageMovers Digital in 2008, there were a few other artists who started some over-the-top decor projects for thier cubicles. Decided to build Superman's Fortress of Solitude over my desk. I'm a huge Superman fan, and was on a big Sup' kick at that time. Bases was comprised of 4 foundation pieces made of wood, each customized for the topology of the desk. Hand wired LEDs inside clear acrylic mounts. Then rolled the crystal tubes with freezer paper which slid over the clear mounts. Finished off with mini artic ice chunks at the base made with stryfoam. It was just relaxing to look at once it was done and all lit up. You can check out the blog here documenting most stages of the construction.
