Sweater #18

Sweater #18Sometimes finding the best place to place these knitted objects can be challenging.  Yesterday was one of those days.  I wanted to place it in an unusual space that wasn’t associated with a park or library.  While walking up and down Congress I began noticing people patterns–or the way people interact with the space.  Nothing new for architects and urban engineers, but something new for a studio artist like myself.  After awhile, I noticed that the most pedestrian traffic occured at the west half of Clark and Congress, so I decided to place the sweater at the northwest corner of of that intersection.  It also happens to be a hang out for quite a few homeless folks. Notice the graffiti along the fence post–something that attracted me to the spot instantly.
