Etherea by Edoardo Tresoldi is a series of "three wire-mesh sculptures whose translucency weaves onto the festival grounds something that isn’t really there: neoclassical and Baroque-inspired architecture of identical shapes ranging in scale from three to five to seven stories tall, or 36, 54 and 72 feet, respectively."
