Knitted Wall

by Wednesday, June 26, 2013

One of the things I love about Williamsburg is that you always find different types of creative expressions, especially on the walls. On this occasion, I found this fully knitted wall… Too much work to handle! I wonder how they had the time to weave yards and yards of thread… Anyway, it caught my attention so much that obviously I started doing some research and finally understood what it is all about. This wall is part of the Absolut Open Canvas, an initiative promoted by a group of contemporary artists to transform a setting. In this case, they wanted to transform the street and structure of an ordinary block into an interactive outdoor exhibition. The purpose is to remind us that we can change our past and future with a bit of attitude and creativity with phrases such as “The future is yours to create” or “Transform Today”. Apparently there are going to be more projects like this until the end of the month. I highly recommend it. If you want to find out more upcoming activities to visit

Algo que me llama la atención de Williamsburg es que siempre hay paredes y murales decorados. En esta ocasión, me encontré esta pared totalmente tejida… ¡Cuánto trabajo!! En que momento se pusieron a tejer metros y metros de hilo…En fin, me llamó tanto la atención que obviamente me puse a hacer un poco de research y ya entendí bien de que se trata.  Esta pared es parte del proyecto Absolut Open Canvas, una iniciativa que impulsa a un grupo de artistas contemporáneos a transformar una locación como en este caso una cuadra de calle común y corriente en una exhibición al aire libre interactiva. Todo esto con el propósito de recordarnos que podemos transformar nuestro pasado y futuro con un poco de actitud y creatividad con frases como “The future is your’s to create” o “Transform Today”. Al parecer vienen más proyectos de este tipo hasta que acabe el mes de Junio así que les recomiendo si es que se quieren enterar más de las próximas actividades visiten
