Over the last couple weeks my crochet designs got published in two magazines, Let’s Knit Magazine and Homespun Australia!
Also, I finally received a copy of Freedom in Action, a doctoral thesis by a friend of mine, Niels van Miltenburg. He asked me to design a cover based on the poem “The Road not Taken” by Robert Frost:
(just to be clear: that black bar wasn’t my idea… it’s the standard layout for all theses over there…. it’s horrific.)
And…. last but not least, my work kinda got featured in Dutch newspaper Trouw! Julie van der Hove wrote a small article about the Utrecht Down Under exhibition at the Wolvenplein prison, and mentioned the DPRK project. It’s a paid-for article so I won’t copy everything here, just the part where you can read about my work:
My work is currently supported
by the Mondriaan Fund:
As you might know, I also design crochet patterns next to making art, and sell them online to raise funds for my art projects.
Today I received two copies Hummeln im Herzen in the mail, a novel by Petra Hülsmann. The book features my photo of my bumblebee crochet pattern on the cover! The publisher gave the black part of the bee a fuzzy layer, which makes it even more cute to look at. They even used the photo inside the book at the start of every chapter, so cute!
It’s beeeees, beeeees all over the place!
I’m actually following a German language course at this moment, so hopefully I’ll be able to read the book myself somewhere in the near future.
Yesterday I received a copy of the book Unnoticed Art, featuring an essay by Frans van Lent, and many descriptions of the performances performed at the festival itself.
The IT series of performances where part of the festival as well. In the book you can read a brief description on how to perform the work, and the written down experiences of two performers.
I really like the way the title is printed onto the cover of the book, as you can see in the pictures above.
Go to the >Unnoticed Art Festival website< to order a copy of the book.
