Italian artist Francesca Pasquali assembles drinking straws to create amazing three-dimensional art installations. The colorful plastic materials are cut to varying lengths and arranged in patterns that viewers will want to reach out and touch. Collectively, the straws form a synthetic landscape filled with peaks and troughs.
The artist says, “The technique of interlacing [plastic] …makes it live again in the shape of sculpture, which spreads out towards the space around, creating various texturized effects. Observing nature itself, I transfer the essential being of it. The interlacing forms transform the industrial material into soft and sensual shapes.”
