Yarn Bombing is the art of crochet and knit graffiti or as I like to call it, site-specific fiber art installations. Most yarn bombers work with conventional yarns. Many bombers/bombing groups have manifestos, and I'm working on mine. I'll release it when it's done.
Anyway, this past week I've found myself with time on my hands, no looming deadlines, and have been waiting on clients to reply to emails. I had recently checked out a book from the library called Yarn Bombing by Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain and decided this was something I could get into. But since my current fiber of choice is video tape, that's what I'll use.
To make "Hello Lamp Post," her latest site-specific fiber art for Bemis, the artist used videotape from nine movies including "Blood Sport" and "Overboard." [Above: Close up of the installation and a six-legged visitor. Photo by Juanita Canzoneri.]
