Nina Katchadourian = Mind Blown

July 14, 2009

OK. Wait. This is amazing. The sheer detail and eye-straining work that went into this art project blows my mind. The concept is so elegantly beautiful to boot. See more of Nina’s amazing handy work with red thread from “Mending Spiderwebs” after the jump:

The morning after the first patch job, I discovered a pile of red threads lying on the ground below the web. At first I assumed the wind had blown them out; on closer inspection it became clear that the spider had repaired the web to perfect condition using its own methods, throwing the threads out in the process. My repairs were always rejected by the spider and discarded, usually during the course of the night, even in webs which looked abandoned.
