While researching a post for my other blog I came across the amazing crochet installations of London-based artist Abigail Reynolds. This is her Grand Mutator piece which started from the pattern for a basic string bag. Her inspiration for the piece comes from the Darwinian theory of evolutionary mutations, where mistakes in the coding cause a progressive change over time.
Reynolds also cites the 1960s toxicity tests performed on spiders as a key source of inspiration.
This is her only public crochet installation (that I know of) but you can see more of Reynolds' work on her website.
p.s. I've tried anarchic crochet and I couldn't do it... I just couldn't make myself not follow the rhythm of crochet, if that makes sense? So, there's awe in this post too ;) Have you tried it? What's the secret?
