"Machiko Agano, a Japanese master weaver artist, is widely known for her intricate textural structures. Each structure is tailored to the specific space in which it is exhibited. The majority of her works use fishing line or natural colored silk and steel wire to allow the space to become part of the exhibit itself. It gives the installations a light feeling, almost as if they aren’t even there." text & image via textile arts center
