Crocheted Flowers Installation



I love the way that simple and repetitive craft processes can turn into something so subtle and complex, like this installation of crocheted flowers by artist Wendy Kawabata called Grow In Light, which conveys the feeling of the long daylight hours in Iceland.

Begun during a residency in Iceland, the installation responds to the constant daylight of the extreme north. Its hundreds of crocheted flowers are painted various greys to return the raw intensity and displacement of the night-less day.
