Feel The Rainbow

How amazing is this installation that Gabriel Dawes created for Miniartextil, an annual contemporary art exhibition in Como, Italy? Known for his vibrant, three dimensional thread art, Dawes explores color by experimenting with natural light and space. I’m sure seeing his work in person is a hundred times as impressive as it is through images. Even so, it’s mesmerizing and utterly beautiful.

    Oh my god! Those are truly magical! And you’re right, seeing them in person must be amazing, like a truly spiritual experience. Reminds me of these installations by Anne LIndberg:

    But the curves that Dawes gets are sublime!
