Foundry day. All the fish cast out clean and were reassembled nicely. Today’s job was to position them to school through the hoops. Each fish needs at least two points of contact, either with the hoop or with another fish. After a few hours of tack-welding, snapping the weld and adjusting, re welding, and fussing about- they came together into two nice groupings. A group of three swimming tightly together through a descending rapid, and a group of two swimming level and further apart. The lead fish is slightly buoyant- as if rising toward the surface, to contrast with the prior commission further down the road where the lead fish is diving toward a “splash” on the ground alluding to river diverted underground.
