Silk Tornado

Japanese artist Akiko Ikeuchi expertly constructs these levitating webs from thin silk thread following extremely detailed blueprints to provide structural support. His work is currently on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo through May 8th. The weightless feeling of the sculpture reminds me of my childhood fantasy of walking on clouds. If only I were weightless this could be my ground.
