Anne Lindberg is interested in creating work that resonates with non-verbal primal human conditions. Seeking to make work that is subtle, rhythmic, abstract and immersive Lindberg finds beauty in creating disturbances by layering materials to create varying tones, densities and pathways.
The architecture and design practice, Serie, created an amazing installation for the Maximum India Festival on the ceiling of the Monsoon Club at the Kennedy Center in DC in 2011. Incorporating over one million threads the piece is a 3D carpet that was inspired by the traditional flat woven rugs in India (Dhurries).
Gabriel Dawe’s breath-taking, mind-bending large-scale installations are made out of nothing but thread. The works are created using sets of string that can be up to 50 miles long. They play with space, dimension and perception.
Brian Wills is also interested in perception and rhythm and the way the brain processes pattern. His hand-made works are created by individually winding threads around board, or other material. Creating dynamic surfaces his works are engaging and beautiful.
French artist Sebastien Preschoux makes thread installations in sections of the forest. Capturing the installations for posterity via photography the results are stunning. We imagine the works sitting quietly in the forest, as if created by a spider from another world, delicately vibrant against the natural backdrop waiting to be discovered.
