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.

Escape Machines

March 25, 2011

Christopher Jobson

DDB Paris created these interactive “Escape Machines” for the French travel company Voyages SNCF. The black, monolithic cubes were installed conspicuously in highly-trafficked public places, the only visible prompt a small red button. As a random person approaches they are asked by a mechanized voice from within the box where they would travel to if they could leave immediately, the button is pressed and hilarity ensues. The person is even presented with an enormous faux ticket to their destination.
