Chiharu Shiota is a Berlin-based Japanese artist responsible for these intricate large scale art installations. Allegedly, Shiota had woken up one day and felt as if her entire room was entwined with black thread. This became the inspiration for many of her artworks, where gallery spaces are often illed with zig-zagging thread, creating this impenetrable, sometimes gothic looking, web.
