Christo, wrapping & pink rubber...

a catch up...

The starting point was looking at the work of Christo from his earlier objects to his latest, The Floating Piers 2014 - 2016.

"For sixteen days – June 18 through July 3, 2016 – Italy’s Lake Iseo was reimagined. 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric, carried by a modular floating dock system of 220,000 high-density polyethylene cubes, undulated with the movement of the waves as The Floating Piers rose just above the surface of the water."




Then we had a go!  
Thin cotton fabric (an old sheet) and string served as materials which was supplemented later by rubber. 
Great fun and impressive results - well done everyone.
