Constellations: Kumi Yamashita.

Last weekend we made our annual summer pilgrimage to Huntington Lake in the Sierra National Forest to visit with friends around the fire pit, play cards and splash in the lake (and enjoy a blissful lack of cellular reception). One can see a spectacular array of stars from the lake, and I spent a few hours soaking in the sight from a chaise lounge on the deck as the fire died down one evening.

Kumi Yamashita's Constellation is an ongoing series of portraits constructed from a single unbroken black thread wound through a dense array of galvanized nails mounted on a painted white board. (The shading is formed solely by the density of the string!)
