I had the privilege of listening to Magda Sayeg talk the other day at the Analogue/Digital Creative Conference on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Sayeg has made a name for herself by pioneering what has become known globally as yarn bombing. The idea behind yarn bombing is to cover an object in the public environment with knitting and crocheting. Simple enough, but no small feat when you see the scale of some of the projects she has produced. Apparently covering a bridge is next on the horizon. It’s rad to see someone out there producing street art in a different context.
