Red Thread Legend Series

 

Two weathered, human-sized oak columns (reclaimed wood from shipping containers) stand in opposition to each other, with thousands of gossamer red threads spanning the distance between them. Each thread is held in place by a needle at each end. Although the thousands of lines connect the two columns and visually pull them towards each other, they are solidly anchored in place and stand silently apart..

Each thread is threaded through two needles on the opposing side of the two columns.
