Making in Terms of Touch
For my final Sculpture I project, I was challenged to think about the lived experience of the body. This year, I've been particularly fascinated with the "stuff" we keep in our lives (clothes, old papers, blankets...etc.) and what makes those things special. I decided that touch is the magic ingredient and I set out to prove it through the magic of a hand knitted scarf.
I was inspired by my mom (who knits relentlessly) to explore touch and love through knitting. This project started with four balls of white yarn, two silver needles, and a whole lot of love (bronze paint). I knitted for a week and a half, applying paint to my fingers, and therefore all the yarn I touched. Here are the results.
