How incredible is this stunning thread installation, Plexus no. 19, by Gabriel Dawe’s in Como, Italy?  

The exhibit consists of two thread structures streamed across an upper and lower balcony that is meant to be experienced from different angles or at different times of the day. As Dawe’s puts it, “When the sun comes in in the morning, it is fantastic. Having those window-shaped light beams add a dimension to the installation. I always like when I get direct sunshine on them because it emphasizes the layering of the thread in very interesting ways.”

The installation is part of Miniartextil, an annual exhibition of contemporary art, and is open now through November 18, 2012. #mustsee
