The bamboo frame is interwoven with colourful threads that create a beautiful shimmering network resembling multi-dimensional mathematical models of the universe.
From far, Clotho looks like a mirage in the dusty air. When up close, burners could see how the elements form the experience and could add to the artwork by weaving a tapestry following the structural framework provided.
The installation will help orient burners using colours and entrances for the four cardinal points . At night, lights will illuminate the network to show a ghostly immaterial presence.
Clotho’s geometry is reminiscing of the desert’s volcanic past and blends with the mountainous horizon.
Elements such as swings or hammocks could be added to create a more habitable environment, encouraging diverse forms of participation.
We aim to completely disassemble the structure into its naturally pure elements we could give out to the burners, donating the rest to be reused for art, construction or any other purpose.
