“Yes, definitely way too much time on her hands” another concurred.
I like this, I sound like such a lunatic. And it raises so many great questions. Is art making only for someone who has nothing better to do? Am I so bored that all I can think of to do is yarnbomb? Actually I am more satisfied with knitting and installing yarnbombs everywhere than I could ever have imagined. I don’t have more time than before, I pack all my time with what I want to do.
It’s an amazing thing to go ahead and do what you want to do. Very energizing. Why not?
This is another piece I put up in Santa Cruz last week. I was thinking of a very tall flower.As I was sewing a gentleman stopped suddenly and blurted “This is art!’ It really was a relief to hear. He turned out to be a photographer who has been documenting street art for 10 years, he had never seen knitted street art. We talked on Free Santa Cruz radio on a call in talk show later that night. It is strange and delightful to be described as part of the hip hop generation.
