Sunrise Tender Vortex: A Sculptural Installation Made Out of Thousands of Wooden Clothespins

As part of the Horizontes de Deseo (Horizons of Desire) show at Museo MAR in Mar del Plata, Argentina. architect Martin Huberman and a team at Normal Studio, have created “Sunrise Tender Vortex,” a sculptural installation made from 68,000 wooden clothespins dyed in a colorful gradient. Inspired by the powerful imagery of tornados, hurricanes, and storms; the team decided to construct a full-scale wooden tornado. Via the press release, "From the simplicity of the clothespin as constructive unit to the complexity of seeing oneself reflected in the eye of a frozen storm at the end of a tunnel of color, the work attempts to make an impact, to open up spatial awareness, and to reawaken viewers’ senses to commonplace encounters with the vastness of the natural world."
