Crystal Cave of Pilastro

150 meters of crystal-encrusted cotton twine, stretched and lit with LEDs to create a glowing cave effect.

Pilastro di Bonavigo (VR)
June 2014

The twine was soaked in a supersaturated potassium alum solution on site over a period of five days.

The 13th edition of Umberto Polazzo’s annual event, Art Farm Pilastro. Some photos from our stay are on the blog.

As always, we had a blast hanging out with the other artists, especially Beni Altmüller, Mariette Huber, Iolana Martini and Isabelle Spitzi (and Umberto). Feature image courtesy of Giovanni Bertani. Top image courtesy of Arturo Bragaja.
