Gap crit

I set up the space with conflicting actions and images. While knitting, my hands gestures appear to be gentle and it can be hard to imagine how destructive they usually are. I find that when i’m using both of my hands to do something productive, i gain more work and lose less hair. In this case, the scarf is a representation of how my hair is growing along with it. There were many observations and positive comments, however, a hand full of people felt as though they were invading my personal space and if i choose to do a performance like this again in the future, i will make the atmosphere more inviting by arranging more seats with ongoing knitting projects that anyone can contribute to.
