The best art and design tends to make you ponder deeply on the piece in front of you but there are some examples of creative genius which just take things to a level beyond. Conjuring a range of work that literally has us rubbing our eyes for a chance to see his vast structures in a clearer light, Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi’s striking wire mesh monuments are insane. Like throwing up a 3D architectural blueprint, Tresoldi constructs beautiful sculptures that simultaneously give an impression of rigid stability and fleeting, ghostly beauty thanks to the translucent nature of the mesh. Having previously recreated an early Christian Church in Puglia, the artist recently spent three months erecting a vast pavilion in Abu Dhabi.
