knit/crochet sculpture

Several friends have shared photos of Japanese artist Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam’s knit and crochet sculpture, and I find it quite inspirational. I also happened upon Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto today while reading through a designboom newsletter–both artists create large scale, interactive sculptures using industrial yarn/rope that’s been hand knitted into a lovely web. The vimeo video of Neto’s installation is quite amazing–he had quite a large team installing his hanging labyrinth and I couldn’t help but wonder how such a project is funded.
