hanging on by a thread

Though the expression hanging on by a thread is used to describe something falling apart, nail and string art manages to look put together. Using utility materials (string, nail) and simple techniques (wrapping, stretching) these pieces step away from traditional wall art and make for more of a sculptural installation on your wall. Would you ever try something like this in your home?
