Last week I went to see the degree show at Derby University and there were a lot of nice things on display, particularly from the Textiles Department. I will do my best to write a proper post about some of the work I saw but in the mean time I'd like to share these photos with you. True, they have nothing to do with the show but are fine examples of how textiles can be used in art and they amused me when I saw them.
These are from the ‘Nid de Poule‘ (pothole) project by Juliana Santacruz Herrera. Using colourful pieces of wool, she brightened up the streets of Paris giving cracks and holes in pavements a new lease of life and offering passers-by something to smile at.
Lastly, I loved this when I saw it and I'm sure you'll appreciate it too if you ever watched The Cosby Show when you were little. Whoever started this Tumblr had a brilliant idea.
