The Mended Spiderweb series

April 30, 2008

I know it isn’t even 10am yet, but lets just call this the “link of the day” shall we?

Nina Katchadourian decided, in 1998 no less, to repair broken spiderwebs around the home she was living in at the time.  She used red sewing thread and a few dabs of glue.

Here is what she says about the reception of her work by the spiders:

“My repairs were always rejected by the spider and discarded, usually during the course of the night, even in webs which looked abandoned.”

I could look at this exhibition all day.
