THE CREATIVE VOICE. This is the first in a series of monthly posts that will explore the sources of creative inspiration of living artists. Featured artists will speak of the unique circumstances that cause the Muses to visit them, and how they understand and interpret what the Muses are imparting. The artists will share their personal intuitions and insights, sometimes by telling a story, sometimes by explaining a concept or vision. May this exhilarating voyage encourage and motivate the artist in each of us.

Crochet Playgrounds

by Viktoria Vidali on May 26, 2014

in Great Things To Share,Videos

In the mid 1990s, Japanese artist Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam was showing a large scale crochet artwork at an art gallery when two rambunctious children approached her and asked if the sculpture, resembling a colorful hammock, could be climbed on. She nervously agreed and watched cautiously as her suspended artwork twisted and stretched as the kids climbed on top of it.

Suddenly an idea was born. Almost three years later MacAdam would open her first large-scale crochet playground. She has since created several additional playscapes around Japan, photos of which were recently made available for the first time online only a few weeks ago. Enjoy the show!

You’re a middle-aged woman living alone. It’s a very cold winter’s day … but sunny … so you give your cat a goodbye pat on the head and reluctantly venture outside to do your shopping. Before long, you’re rosy-cheeked and nearly chilled to the bone. Spotting a familiar refuge, you slip into the neighborhood café for a cup of tea and human camaraderie.
