Untitled Sock Project is an artistic installation developed during November 2010 as part of the Mediamatic Dev Camp in Amsterdam.

By blowing into straws visitors contribute to create a knitted sock. Depending on how hard they blow and the straw they blow into, the sock will be knitted faster and the thread will be colored with different pigments. The result will be a collaboratively knitted sock lamp with a unique color pattern.

My favorite part is how the thread gets colored, very neat!
