White Paper Four: Return of the Wild Boar Five

By the fifth day in Augsburg the three artists in the White Room seemed to finally be feeling the effects of too little sleep, too much complimentary City of Peace backstage beer, and an overdose of making art. Far from snoozing sweetly back at the defined by apartment though, we flew in the face of sleepiness and instead went a little bit nutty in the White Room. After all the White Wall on the side of the stadium was filling up with our White Papers: And we were in the newspaper having a...

White Paper Three: Squid’s Eye View

It might not seem as tough as building skyscrapers, gutting fish or working in a coal mine but being dropped into the middle of a strange city to make original art every day was quite a scary thing. Here’s why: Every day our art went up on the wall of the City of Peace Stadium in the centre of the city. There is was peered at by passers by who either lived in or were visiting the city. I felt very much that each White Paper I made needed to show the people peering at it that I was doing...

Holy Handmade, it’s knitted Jesus!

According to some folks we have until 6pm today to cast off loose ends. At this time Jesus will pop down, gather up all his believers and then smite the rest of us blasphemous demonic mortal fools. In preparation for this I sorted my little sis out with a bit of Holy Handmade for just such an occasion when her birthday came around last year. This exclusive edition Holy Handmade Knitted Jesus features not one but two miracles. He’s busting out the fibre loaves and fishes to feed the 5000...

New York Squids in the city: Mollusc at the Museum

One squid. One city museum. One mission. New York City’s American Museum of Natural History boasted more than 32 million species and artefacts in its hallowed halls. That’s a whole lot of beasts, birds and other bits. But there was one species that was tragically lacking in the museum’s myriad of mammals and monsters. It was about time that species took its place. The humble Stitched Squid (squidius knittius), and his larger relative the Giant Stitched Squid (affectionately...

New York Squids in the City: Statue of Squiddity

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Liberty Island’s Statue of Liberty Construction Tour. It sure took a lot of people to put the big lady with the light together. Now if you step this way you’ll see Edouard Rene de Laboulaye who came up with the idea of the Statue. And this fella is Alexandre Gustave Eiffel who designed her iron skeleton. Emma Lazurus was the poet who wrote the lines embedded in the statue’s pedestal “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses...
