Beams In The Forest- Sébastien Preschoux



Sébastien Preschoux is a 35 year old self taught French Artist/Designer. In this project called Lasers he uses Acrylic string to create a series of acrylic installations in environments were no previous man-made graphics existed.  Argentine, Tri-color, 9 colors, and Cocoon are all examples of geometric string art creations in previously organically shaped areas.

Mr. Preschoux creates handmade works of art as a commentary to today’s generation which disposes of images at a industrial rapidity and cease to ask [] themselves about where these things are coming from- he strives to create art that is not easily reproduced and often temporary. His yarn installations arise from his graphic work and from the observation of the sunlight in nature. With my work I concentrate on the line and its repetition. With these installations I wanted to reproduce the sunbeams with coloured cotton yarn.
Further quotes from his interview at: http://trendland.net/2010/05/16/sebastien-preschoux-interview

The first time I made a thread installation it was in the forest in Argentina. It is very pleasant and approachable to work in natural environments : no one disturbs you, you take the time you want, the time you need. Additionally trees are a very solid construction on which you can work without destroying anything.

I wonder, are these installations just out in nature for people to stumble upon? What a delight it would be to go out for a walk and see something like this, without warning or explanation. Fascinating.
