so thinly

See more images and read about this wonderful piece by Elliot Collins. Thread and text and an ambiguous but poignant statement- art after my own heart!

from the press release:
The outlines of his carefully positioned nails say ‘The World Is Held Together So Thinly' - a comment perhaps on the fragility of corporeal existence and the striving for a comprehending mental view of the actions of other creatures (sentient or otherwise). Or a reference to our cities' vulnerability to earthquakes. Or even the fragility of social bonding. It's highly ambiguous.
