Ask me anything
Hi, my name is Emerald. I love to crochet and I tend to find inspiration in everything. I mostly stay in the realms of hooks and yarn, but I'm known to dabble in other areas of my creativity. In this blog, you will not only find a bunch of reblogs, but I also post my endeavors and WIPs. main blog: emyfersure ravelry: saturdayeeEEee
“…Hundreds of Chinese scissors suspended from the ceiling in a shimmery cloud. The piece involved the artist sitting at a small black table, hand-mending patches of fabric together which visitors were encouraged to cut themselves near the entrance. As the performance continued, the piece grew as one continuous cloth and lay spread on the floor.
The hovering mass of the downward-pointed scissors represent the distant fear and looming violence present in today’s cultural climate. The sharp blades above the artist are put in contrast by the silent and simple act of mending. The dichotomous result of the instant fear superimposed with the calming effect of the sewing created a surreal atmosphere in the room.”
Street artist My Dog Sighs creates gorgeously painted faces on found crushed cans, which he then leaves on the streets in random places for passers-by to take home. It is both a street art installation project and an altruistic gesture dedicated to the cause of free art for everyone.
