Gabriel Dawe’s Dynamic Colored Thread Sculptures Imitate Prisms of Light

Mesmerizing rainbows have appeared, seemingly out of thin air, just a stone’s throw away from the White House. But what looks like colorful rays of light are actually just a trick of the eye. Artist Gabriel Dawe crafted the ethereal optical illusion, titled Plexus A1, from 60 miles of embroidery thread that span 19-foot-tall ceilings. The thread installation was created as part of the recently renovated Smithsonian Renwick Gallery’s “Wonder” Exhibit in Washington, D.C.
