February 28th, 2018: Hobby / Obsession

A lot of people have hobbies. Occasionally they turn into vocations. And rarely turn into obsessions.
I’m not sure which it is for Liisa Hietanen, but sure as hell way passed a hobby.

Quote:
Knitting is a popular pastime in Finland. Even the Finnish Olympic team could be seen knitting before and after their competitions at the 2018 Winter Olympics! But Finnish artist Liisa Hietanen takes it to a whole new level with her knitted and crocheted sculptures of real-life people. Hietanen painstakingly crochets, knits and sometimes embroiders every single piece of her sculpture — from the clothes and accessories down to the objects a sculpture is holding.


Quote:
Hietanen's process begins with the people in her village, Hämeenkyrö, Finland. She asks them to model. "We then meet and create the pose," Hietanen told MNN. "I photograph the person from all directions and take a few measurements." Hietanen mostly works off the photographs. However, when she starts working on the face and hands, she meets with the model again. "We might go for coffee or lunch. Meanwhile, I study their characteristics." By watching her model's mannerisms, Hietanen is able to perfectly capture their personality and mood.


Maybe she’s a serial killer and plans to replace the whole village so nobody suspects.
I’m pretty sure it’s an obsession after seeing this bathroom.
The fixtures, trash can, toilet paper = hobby.
But wall tile, paper towels and the damn mirror = obsession.

My Mom would appreciate a cushy toilet like that.

The kind where the lid/seat won't stay up when you try to pee?
