I thought it would be interesting to do a yarnbombing that related to the pink pussy cat hats . I wanted to do a project that would be interactive , I really like art that breaks down the barrier between the artist and the veiwer .I found that I was spending a lot of time obsessing over politics and I wanted to make art instead , preferably some art that would provide some relief from constant political reactivity.
I came up with the idea of yarnbombing with pink
Poms . I teach people to make Pom
Poms with this excellent Japanese Pom Pom maker. Everybody can make a Pom Pom , even people who are 4 years old . I also give them a little card to write about
” what are you for in your politics ‘
This weekend , June 24 2017 , I’m starting my first installation of the “Pom Poms and Politcs ” project at Blue Moon Farm on Vashon Island in Washington.
