Bouncy ball curtain by me, Elizabeth Symington.

Oodles of crazy straws and 950 bouncy balls later and vio la!! bouncy ball curtain!
I finished the commission on April 23rd, 2010 and had a small celebratory party, involving playing with the 100 extra bouncy balls.
- The 1,100 bouncy balls were hand drilled, which only took 4 hours
- The curtain is 90 inches tall and about 59 inches wide
- Stetson, Andrew's lab, did grab one big bouncy ball during the install, but so far has left them alone (fingers crossed)
- The balls came from a gumball machine supplier that I found online
