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.
