March 25, 2015: Crochet artist decorates homeless shelter in India



My Modern Metropolis highlights this item from Hi Fructose.

Says My Modern Met,

Quote:
Olek, a self-proclaimed “crochet graffiti” artist, recently brightened up a homeless shelter in India by swaddling the entire building in a colorful, knitted tapestry. The New York City-based artist completed her project as part of the Indian street art festival St+art Delhi, which is commissioning artists to beautify shelters to highlight the social issue of homelessness. The goal is “giving a new face to these structures and visibility to the people who live in them,” according to the festival’s website.


Quote:
This particular shelter, Raine Basera, offers temporary, overnight lodging to women who are down on their luck. To make the project a reality, Olek spent a week manning a large team of volunteers and knitted alongside local women. The finished patchwork of colorful doilies depicts flowers, butterflies and elephants stretched across the building’s roof and walls. The shelter has been a beacon of warmth for countless ladies, and with its new sweater wrapping, the unseen effects of the shelter take on visible qualities.

My Mother used to crochet, but she would never do anything like that.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess.

It's pretty and all that, but....

Are they going to take it down before rainy season? Because mold. "First, I needed a place to stay; now I have a fungal infection in my lungs."

In the top picture I am pretty sure that is a kindle at the top of the roof. I can just see her being all lazy all day up there reading while she makes those poor slave workers doing all the knitting down below.

I'm like "what is he talking about??" so I use the scroll wheel on my mouse to move the thread downward and my view upward...

Lo, and behold, my cursor was directly on the "kindle" when the screen reached the top.

So, Coign,

how in the hell did you do that????!!!!!

I read my Kindle a lot. It is pattern recognition to quickly spot the last place I left my Kindle when I am hunting for my book.
