Akiko Ikeuchi - Thread Installation

Loving this room-size installation by Japanese artist Akiko Ikeuchi:
Found via Inspix

"Beginning with intricate plans resembling architectural diagrams, Ikeuchi first lays a foundation structure using cotton thread. Next, a second layer using fine silk thread is slowly knotted into a mesh, a process that spans nearly a month for an installation such as the one depicted."

It makes me think of netting which I've been very drawn to these last couple of years for some reason.

How she keeps the threads untangled is a mystery to me..


  1. That is phantastic and an incredible work - I love this fragile airy works that plays with the space! Great. Thanks for sharing this.
