Along with eight other contemporary artists, Mexican artist Gabriel Dawe is exhibiting his installation called 'Plexus A1' within the WONDER display at the Renwick Gallery until July 10. WONDER is an exhibition showing nine very different projects within Renwick Gallery, all of which use large-scale and/or unexpected materials. Dawe uses around 100 kilometers of cotton thread to create a colorful installation that is similar to the light spectrum.
