"KNITTING NATION Phase 10: Domestic Swarming" Staged in NYC


Phase 10 of the KNITTING NATION project will be staged at MoMA Studio: Common Senses, as a response to Fritz Haeg’s Domestic Integrities rug. Artist Liz Collins (Associate Professor, Textiles) and five other knitters will create narrow cords in a spectrum of colors that feed directly from knitting machines into piles of cording, which are then to be braided directly into the rug. No cutting, no knots, just six contiguous cords of color feeding the piece for five hours straight. Visitors are welcome to observe this Swarming and learn about the process, while also contributing to crocheting the circular Domestic Integrities rug using discarded textiles that will be on hand.
