In the sun the multi-faceted glass beads beamed bright. At night ambient light caught the beads and monofilament mimicking constellation charts.
Both “Web” and the following piece, Toile, were completed at the Klotz Chateau in Rochefort-en-Terre, Brittany, France. Web was constructed in the large entrance courtyard so that visitors could walk under it.
The installation was a response to the hundreds of spider webs found in the grasses and outbuildings at the chateau. In addition, the piece referenced the night star charts of Northern France.
