It was time to introduce a new project in class. This one has to do with form in space and textiles used to define space. I thought that it would be a good thing to start this off away from knitting and the machines. We began the exploration of form with balloons.

I don't think that the class was too thrilled with the material, but everyone pushed through
There was some fun

We maintained our calm demeanor

The Craft Hack Project

warning - image heavy post

The First Project for the Material Construction Class was due this past week.

Project - Craft Hack
"Hacking is a subtle and arguably mystical art, equal parts wit and technical ability" - urbandictionary.com
Using your knowledge of machine knitting techniques, and other non woven textile structures, develop a work or series of pieces that explore the notion of craft as repurposed technology. Please use the knitting machine for at least part of the work.

I was blown away by the diverse interpretations that the class presented in the critique.

While I tried to get photos of each of the pieces some of my photos were less successful than others.
Just so members of my class know, some of the photos were really crappy. These are the ones that are less crappy. It is not a comment on any ones work.

Here's some of what we looked at.

A lot of information to take in, and huge places for these ideas and work to go. I'm excited.
