Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam began her career as a textile artist. While exhibiting a piece titled “Multiple Hammock No. 1″ a couple of children in the gallery asked if they could use it. Surprisingly she allowed the children to play on her sculpture. The amusing incident led to an idea, and her work has since become much larger and fun. Adding color, size, and interactivity, her work soon transformed from sculpture to public art and finally to playground. The playground pictured here is hand knit by MacAdam and located in Tokyo.
Shaun Kardinal transforms found and scavenged postcards into geometric altered spaces that are hypnotic. His site is full of places, people and things that he’s created on found images and redistributed into the world.
It’s not everyday that we post an artist who works with yarn but Jo Hamilton’s crochet portraits are really interesting. I’m really happy that Jo decided to not over finish these and left them without a background and with the yarn hanging down. Sort of looks like paint drips and adds another dimension to the work that you don’t see often in crochet.
This stop motion video was mainly created out of yarn. It’s beautiful.
