Bigger, better

There’s artist that do bigger, better things! From the blog  crochetconcupiscence.com  

wiki: concupiscence (from the Latin: con-, with + cupi, cupid – desire + -escere – suffix denoting beginning of a process or state) is often defined as an ardent, usually sensual, longing.[1] The concept is most commonly encountered in Christian theology, as the selfish human desire for an object, person, or experience.[2] For Christians, concupiscence refers to what they understand as the orientation, inclination or innate tendency of human beings to long for fleshly appetites, often associated with a desire to do things which are proscribed.

Playscapes, which is a fun blog all about playground design, recently had an article on this artist through which I learned the fun story about how she got started doing her large scale crochet playground pieces. They explained that the artist had her work in a gallery and a couple of kids came and started playing on her piece because they didn’t know any better. She loved the way that the sculpture came to life as these kids played on it and thus was born her desire to move her art into the public space where it could be used.
