This exposition is amazing! Imagine, the most beautiful sea creatures from the Great Barrier Reef, all made now in crochet. All this huge artwork have an ecologic reason: Global worming. Do you know that many sea species, like coral, are dieing because of this? If we don't stop this serious problem now, soon we will have to forget about this incredible submarine world.
This exposition was designed and curated by Christine and Margaret Wertheim, Co-Directors of The Institute For Figuring (TheIFF). All the crochet work are a great testimony of feminine handicraft in our times.
