fibre arts

Holy moly crap-oly! Look at all these amazing examples of fine arts through the medium of fiber (knitted, crocheted, sewn, embroidered). I'm so inspired!

From The Thread as the Line: Contemporary Sewn Art exhibit at the Eclipse Art Center in Virginia.

Crochet Coral Reef Exhibition at the Institute for Figuring. I think I might have blogged about this before. Or at least I know I've seen mention of this exhibit before. Sadly, I didn't realise that this traveling exhibit came to my neck of the woods last year(!).

And the in-store decor of a retail shop in New York called LP&P.

That would be an entire wall of a hand knit. Whoa.

Though I wouldn't want this for my home (just imagine the upkeep and maintenance!) I love that it exists out there. I wonder who they commissioned to dream up this thing? And who executed the knit? It must have been a joint venture.
