Strung Out - The Work of Chiharu Shiota

I've just been introduced to the delicate and slightly sinister work of Japanese artist, Chiharu Shiota. There's not much to explain the process on the website, but I'm definitely in awe of anyone who has the patience and the eye to create such a dreamlike environment out of fiber. I would love to walk through one of these installations!

  1. Thanks for the link. The work is beautiful and mysterious at the same time.

  2. I just looked at several year's worth of work on Chiharu's site. Wow. Especially the one above, since it looks like the piano was initially set on fire and the thread was used to express the aftermath of the fire. Amazing.

  3. Thanks for the comments! Alice - Yeah, that piano piece is my favorite!
