This suspended thread installation was created by the Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota for the Blain Southern gallery in Berlin, Germany.

The artist is known for creating various installations with the use of suspended thread and she does not take the work lightly. She is able to create immersive experiences for those who visit her work. This particular installation is titled 'Uncertain Journey' and reveals canoe frames dispersed around a room and surrounded by complexly connected red threads. The suspended threads are meant to be reminiscent of neurons in the brain while the traveling element of the installation is clear in its use of canoes.

This artistic installation works to capture the attention of visitors while remaining true to the artist's personal signature and style.
