This web must have been made by a giant spider! A spider from a dark future, where a polluted and poisoned environment has mutated it to enormous proportions. Hopefully we'll never reach this point(!), but it is an interesting fact that inspired the artist for this artwork. She discovered that spiders weave an irregular web under the influence of toxic substances, such as pesticides. And not only on spiders, but on all living things, pollution has a negative effect. That is why it is important that our environment remains as clean as possible, including the air we breathe.
