Macrogauze hanging M208 no.3 by Peter Collingwood. The threads of beige and black thread forming a pyramid formation using Collingwood's innovative technique. The steel rods have a structural purpose of ensuring that the artwork hangs flat.

The 'Macro-gauze' was first created in 1964 as a response to a visit to the United States in 1963; particularly the work of Lenore Tawny; a pioneering artist who combined steel and brass with linen threadwork. This groundbreaking 'Macro-gauze' generated an ongoing oeuvre in Peter Collingwood's work, in both 2D and 3D, the compositions based around mathematical sequences and geometric patterns.
