Thread and Nail Portraits


New York artist Kumi Yamashita is working on a project called Constellation that I find pretty fascinating.  It is a series of portraits made by wrapping a single thread around some nails to create dark and light areas that express an image.  The results are pretty fantastic.

Outstanding work.
