Caitlin McCormack: String Sculptures

Philadelphia artist Caitlin McCormack creates beautifully delicate sculptures out of string which are inspired by fossils and animal skeletons. On her website she describes how she makes these art works:

The act of stiffening intricately crocheted cotton string with glue produces material that is structurally similar to delicate bone tissue. The string implemented in this process can be viewed as the basic cellular unit of fabrication, and by utilizing media and practices inherited from my deceased relatives, I aim to generate emblems of my diminishing bloodline, embodied by each organism’s skeletal remains.
