Crochet Urchins in Singapore

Look at these giant crocheted Urchins that the architectural firm Choi+Shine put together for the ILight festival in Singapore!

Aren't they beautiful? It took 50 artisans to crochet the pieces for these. You can read about the project and see the process of construction on the Choi+Shine website. I love how lace out of a familiar context really makes you look.

Here's a quote from the designers about the installation that I particularity like:

Seeing hovering and glowing lacy objects against majestic skyscrapers and dark water would make them pause and gaze.  This momentary pause of the mundane routine of our life would hopefully give us an opportunity to find the poetry around us.

Today I'm off to find more poetry.
