UK Artist Kate MccGwire Disgusts And Impresses All At Once.

Be scared, oh yes, be scared… or be really, really impressed. This grotesquely dizzying installation by UK-based artist is really made of piles and piles of pigeon feathers, felt, glue, and polystyrene. Looking at it might give you the feeling of practically suffocating on the feathers, sure, but the amount of time and attention to detail must have made Sluice a humongous undertaking.

In any case, this is just the beginning, too. Kate MccGwire has worked with feathers for years, and she is an expert at site-specific installations. Visit her website for more.
