Invasive crochet: Lace doilies and razor wire

April 21, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Artist Crystal Gregory created this Invasive Crochet installation as part of a show in New York called Art in Odd Places. Via her web site:

Invasive Crochet challenges gender roles by placing handwork on hardened city surfaces around New York. Crocheting lace doilies onto the razor wire of an abandoned lot for the 14th Street public art show Art in Odd Places, smothering the urban landscape in a soft, decorative, and familiar juxtaposition.

And suddenly I have no idea where I found this. Suffice to say, it was certainly somewhere.
