For the last decade there has been a new focus for the creative talents of knitters. It has various names, the most common is ‘yarn bombing’ and various combinations of the words knitting and graffiti.
The photo on the right is from a stop sign in my neighborhood that got a warm jacket on the pole for this current winter.
I wrote a blog on the end of art a while back. Part of my argument is that art has entered everyday life in such a way it can’t be distinguished from any other part of life.
Yarn bombing is a perfect example. It is not an example that everybody is an artist, it is an example that we can find vitality anywhere. Art can be everything and anything. We live in a world where human artifacts are extraordinary.
We live in a commercial world where each human can become fully alive and fully realized.
