About this artwork

Hesperia, whose name refers to the color of the setting sun, was made using 5 km of thread, share artist Ani Abakumov. The nymph of evening and golden light of sunsets symbolizes the fertilizing force of the sun's rays.Ani and Andrew work together to create their signature series of fiber artworks. Andrew, a mathematician and programmer, developed an algorithm that creates a blueprint for each new piece. He also prepares each canvas by driving nails into the perimeter of the surface. Ani then strings different colored and sized thread layer upon layer, from hours to months until the image appears. She uses anywhere from 4 km to 20 km of the material for a single piece.
