Just when you think you've seen absolutely everything to do with craft something comes along to stop you in your tracks. Wies Preijde  has created a visually stunning installation using what must have been an eye watering amount of yarn.

Using thread, she has woven lines, often in graphic formation, to create illusion of hallways, beams of light, 3 dimensionality, windows, and colour. As light shines through the gaps in the thread the illusion of transparency becomes visible. It's a beautiful, intriguing and impressive installation (just think how much time and patience it must have taken to create!). Have a look at the photos below and prepare to be amazed...

Have you ever seen a corridor like this before?

Is this a curved wall or simply an optical illusion?

Look how Wies has created the sense of perspective by changing the angles of the threads.
