I like the look of yarn bombing. I have seen trees covered in colourful yarns sometimes and it looks very interesting. You don't expect to see it and it is unusual, and that's whats appealing. Good to see art work blending into the natural environment, instead of being stark and ' in your face', like it doesn't belong there.
I went away and thought about this . . .came back to see jonaj had written what I was thinking. It is a bit of a waste. I was wondering if they donate it after . . . maybe even to a pet refuge as it may not be suitable for humans anymore.
Love it or hate it, yarn bombing is a form of street art and often serves to brighten up public spaces that would otherwise be drab and boring. A lot of people find it bright, fun and quirky, too. Last year I visited a cute little town in the south of Western Australia called Waroona, where they held a month-long yarn-bombing festival called ;It's a Yarn Thing.' The town was colourfully adorned with bright quirky yarn-bombed objects, both big and small, and the whole community got involved - from small kids at the local school to senior citizens at the nursing home. Part of the festivities was an art / craft exhibition at the town's visitors centre which was raising money for some local charities.
Anyway, I think it's great! It's a modern interpretation of traditional crafting skills and like street art, has become a new genre of art. As the old saying goes,,, 'art for art's sake'.
