Antique Week in New Hampshire

We're back from the New Hampshire show. I'm tired.
saw some very interesting 19th c. knitted doll socks. The photo was taken with my phone so a bit blurry.

And I purchased these 19th c. knitted doll mittens

Part 2 Final Crit

It's taken me a while, Thanks Rachel for the reminder.
super image heavy post
I apologize for the quality of some of these images. I think I need a new camera

Rachel C. - all of her tweets translated into a binary form and knitted

Rachel B. - braided rug taken to extremes

Nabila - a beautiful contemplative space created with twined jute and rice
Michele - knitting and embroidery used to tell a story of memory and remains
Maud - defining a 3-d space with small details and lots of visual impact

Veronika- knitted and fulled forms in tension and dialogMatt - a commentary on contemporary art making, big and red
Madeline - a knitted cocoon - stifling - with mysterious sounds
Jen - humor with an underlying darkness- still photo
the video

I got you Babe from Jennifer Liu on Vimeo.

Eun Hye - knitting used to define a corner, with a punch card text in Korean
Andrew - poetics of a knitted fabric in the urban landscape
Alex - memory of home unravels and re-imagines itself
So you made it through the whole post, congrats

This group of students was all above average. It's taken me a bit of time to post because the truth is I am a bit sad that I won't be teaching at MICA in the fall. It isn't all bad news though. The course material construction will be offered again in the spring 2011, and I will be there trying to inspire another group. Wow I love teaching!!!
