: knitted graffiti wonderland :

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

girls love to decorate stuff around when they feel bored... like their rooms, closet (hehe... in another way), kitchen, shelves, boyfriend (play dress-ups?). and it's a norm to have too much stuff going on and might at the end look a bit tooo much.

textile artist Magda Sayeg founded Knitta Please - a knit graffiti group credited with spawning the international yarn bombing movement (it's on June 11 this year!). Magda continues to install her work around the world in commissioned exhibitions and on her own renegade travels, in addition to hosting workshops, teaching classes, and leading community projects.

i'm loving her attitude to make the world look colorful and happy =)

and they have done this installation in The Blanton's Faulkner Plaza - the trunks of all 99 trees in between the museum's Michener and Smith buildings have been covered with colorful yarn, crafted by over 170 local volunteer knitters. great community effort to spice up the space with beautiful harmony with the nature
