A Threaded Light Spectrum

Mexican artist Gabriel Dawe created a rainbow sculpture from 60 miles of thread. Entitled “Plexus A1”, the sculpture forms part of the “Wonder” exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery, which explores humans’ connection to nature. The rainbow was made from embroidery thread repeatedly woven from floor to ceiling, resulting in an ethereal pattern of color and light. Says Dawe about the title of his work, “It refers to the connection of the body with its environment, but it also relates directly to the intricate network of threads forming the installation itself, and to the inherent tension in the thread, vibrating with an almost tangible luminosity.”
