VIP Private Jetty Release.
This project idea that came to me out of the blue……
Literally I think my 1st was the blue or yellow, very Swedish in colour was my early duckling inspired idea.
Some of my Blog posts.
Tagging yarn bombing just sprang, it/is was. just everywhere.
Inspired by all the great knit art artists (not Zimmerman) but Grrl+dog Denise Litchfield http://dneese.blogspot.com/ and crew, knitted convenience, Magda Sayeg , knitta please with the crocheted bus, http://www.magdasayeg.com/knitta_please_gallery.html
And with the new launch of the Mandy Moore book, Yarn Bombing.
All out there tagging and getting coverage for such big cool projects. I wanted to think up something new…..
I brought a plastic duck for my dog (cheap chew toy) and then ……the thought occurred to me , knitting graffiti on water. I could knit the duck a jacket; drop it in the lake the duck floats and so graffiti tagging the water.
The Ducks project early stage; I had the idea and at the time was not quiet sure what to-do with it.
Crochet ducks for river knit graffiti. It still more commonly known as knit graffiti and really there is no knit in my project. As the ducks are all crocheted using all types of yarns, papers recycled materials, nothing new same stuff that been done before the difference that it gets crocheted in to duck jacket and they then get released on to the lake.
The lake in
What’s stopping this being a world wide duck experiment, crocheted ducks floating every where?
The ducks even have their own face book page, I’m just not that good at face book yet but they seem to be happy sitting.
I’m currently in the making of the mini film (An extended You-tube)
There is a little clip for reference/proof of what it was that I wanted to do. It’s only a two minute you-tube, no introduction no gimmicks just the basic idea.
I have just had a major, five ducks release. So the short film is nearly reality as I have enough footage, It’s currently a WIP .
Watch this space for ducks 2010.
