Portraits Made with a Single Sewing Thread Wrapped through Nails by Kumi Yamashita: Constellation' is an ongoing series of portraits by New York artist Kumi Yamashita, known most prominently for her innovative light and shadow sculptures. Each image is constructed from a single unbroken black thread wound through a dense array of galvanized nails mounted on a painted white board, meaning that the darker areas within the portrait are formed solely from the density of the string.
One Single Thread, One Portrait by Kumi Yamashita "Sometimes you have to sit and process what you are looking at. This is a portrait made from a wooden panel, nails, and one single piece of thread. That is right; one single piece of thread. The panel is painted white, and then the NYC-based artist wraps the black thread around the nails more and more to create the darker sections." http://www.juxtapoz.com/Current/one-single-thread-one-portrait-by-kumi-yamashita #onethread #kumiyamashita
