Beili Liu - Recall
Recall was made from approximately 600 hand-made Paraffin wax drips. These delicate wax drips measure 5 to 8 feet in length, and shatter easily to a light touch . Suspended in the center of the space, the installation echoes the angle of the rafters and the roof of the barn. Sun light falls through the gaps in the roof, and projects hundreds of light circles, which glide across the space and the house structure throughout the day. The house form speaks of a familiar domestic space, though the fragility of the material calls for uncertainty within the viewer about what a house stands for; shelter, protection and home. (X)
Mandy Greer (installation artist) taught community members to crochet “river beds” and then spent six weeks installing them in the trees to celebrate Seattle’s urban creeks and encourage stewardship of local watersheds. From a 2009 installation.
Beautifully brilliant from so many points of view.
CALLING ALL CROCHETERS
I am constructing a collaborative yarn bombing installation in Baltimore, MD and I need your help so that people can see and be tantalized and excited on a daily basis by your work.
I am collecting crochet motifs made in the round. Any shape and color will do, however, I request that the work be at least 10 in. in diameter. The only other requirement that I have is: enjoy yourself and the process. Pick colors that entice you, excite you, and bring you joy. It can be from a pattern or from your imagination. Just make sure you’re having fun. I need these pieces before December 31 of this year, so start stitching.
Contact me to find out more information or where to send the final pieces at firstname.lastname@example.org
