Automation is Deadly

Ekphrasis is a detailed description of a work of visual art in writing. But why can’t art be translated into knitting too? This work of Ekphrastic knitting is based on a Truism by Jenny Holzer. Holzer’s Truisms are an ongoing series of maxims that are meant to spark conversation. The words of Jenny Holzer have been posted on storefronts, scrolled on giant screens in Times Square, shown in LED lights spiraling up the Guggenheim atrium, and projected on buildings. And now, plastered on a toque for you to wear.

You can find the pattern here.

I have some great news to share finally. I was just chosen as the 2023 Artist-in-Residence for Glacier National Park! Although I have never been there it has been top of my list to go. And now I get to spend a blissful month in a cabin on Lake McDonald in June 2023 just to make art. It was an intense application process and I am very grateful to Glacier for choosing me and taking a chance on a knitting textile artist.

Hopefully more updates here as I prepare in the next year and a half as well as during my residency.
