Around here, this outdoor installation has been catching my eye recently. I love how artists are appropriating knitting and crochet for their own purposes, and apparently for this show opening even the tops of the fence posts had little knitted caps. I haven't had a chance to pop into the gallery itself to see the rest of the show, but the fence itself is getting lots of interest in our neighborhood. The show draws connections between math and knitting, as well as the theoretical and the tangeable. I think mostly people like it because it's public art involving a set of skills that is generally saved for other purposes. Like sweaters and fractals. And it makes the iron fence look a little more friendly and attractive.
I'll try to check in again sometime during the next week. Maybe with photos? Certainly I'll have lots to share when we return, including funny stories either involving or told by Heather.
No question about that.
