Floor Installations

I am very excited to be taking a class on shadow knitting at Vogue Knitting Live later this month. Perhaps it’s my affinity for Op Art, but being able to create optical illusions fascinates me. I saw an article in Vogue a long time ago about Jim Lambie and I find his work extremely inspiring. I hope one of his floor installations will be on display in LA at some point so I have the chance to see it in person. He uses vinyl tape to create some of his installations, and aside from the fact I love all the bright colors, I also admire people who can take a mundane thing like tape and create something spectacular out of it. Of course, my medium is yarn, and once I learn the techniques behind shadow knitting, I hope to design some pieces inspired by his work.
