Yarn bombers are busy at work all over the world. Phone booths in London are red no more. A VW Beatle has been entirely covered in Australia. Flickr abounds with demonstrations of this interestingly rebellious act.
I think it rocks. And as a happy hooker, I want to participate. I think I'll start around my neighborhood. (See the link, it's not what you think, lol).
Magda Sayeg is a true artist. The Austin resident has had her "bombs" commissioned as art installations all over the world. Above is some of her work. You can find out more about Magda here, and about yarn bombing, here. What do you think, is it art or not?
