Julia Ramsey Knit Installation at the Textile Arts Center

Congratulations to artist/designer Julia Ramsey for the completion of her residency at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn. I love this image featured in Joetta Maue's Thread Reviews write up on the Textile Arts Center's blog. Perhaps Julia is suggesting that we need to become further engaged with our surroundings and environment by allowing our materials and methods to extend into uncharted, uncorseted, and organic territory? The visual and emotional effect is indeed engaging and stunning.

Read more about Julia's knitwear design work in my article on EcoSalon.
