i’m jealous of nina katchadourian


Yes, that’s right, you’re looking at broken spiderwebs that have been lovingly, and very carefully, mended by an insanely talented/successful American artist named Nina Katchadourian. Now, after all of the hard work and love that went into The Mended Spiderweb Series, do you think those spiders even appreciated the help? Nope. Each morning she would find her starched {and occasionally glued} red threads lying on the ground, and a perfectly intact web that had been repaired during the night by an ungrateful spider. Luckily, that didn’t slow her down. She collected, and framed, the ‘rejected patch’, hanging it beside the photo of her efforts.

{If you’re interested in mending the webs of unappreciative spiders, Nina has created a special ‘Do-it-Yourself Spiderweb Repair Kit’… see image above.}
