Turning 50km Of Yarn, Airbrushes And Maths Into Art

It took 50km of yarn, a computer-controlled airbrush system, a great deal of maths and a ton of elbow grease to create this colourful web. It would take only one tiny pair of scissors to destroy it.

The web is an art installation called Gravity's Loom and was set up in the Indianapolis Museum of Art. A specially created machine coloured the yarn and cut it to the appropriate length, while a group of plain old humans hung each individual piece up.

There's no word on what'll happen to the yarn once the installation is removed, but I'd imagine it could be used to make a lot of cats very happy. [FastCo Design]
