about this project

this project was started in January 2010 and was intended just for the one time showing at the conference Textures (June, Riga, Latvia, 2010). Since I received requests from other people who would like to participate, I decided to create a new place for it and let it continue... Anybody is welcome to add a new story in fiber one, two, three dimensional, not too big in a size (between 20x20x20 and 50x50x50 cm). The written story about the piece is optional but will be appreciated to the level you wish to share it. Every submission will be documented on this blog.

how I feel (March 2, 2010)

I have finished my own piece - 

those are mixed feelings about moving to US and time spent in academia. As I wrote before, the wool I used came from worn out woolen socks. Moving to US for me was like taking apart my previous life and trying to re-knit it in something new. Yes, I became known as a creator of crocheted hyperbolic plane model, therefore one of them made it on this piece also. I am not hiding all the knots in the piece because I have had many knots I had to deal with on my way. 
The rest of it... well, it was the purpose of this whole project that I would make a piece and could say - this is how I feel... 
so here it is (more pictures in the album):
