Bidrag til Prudens Mapstone – 50 years of flower power

I 2015 indbød Prudens Mapstone alle freeformere til at være med i hendes projekt 50 years of flower power – a freeform crochet and knit artwork. 

Mit bidrag:

Temaet var som sagt Flower power, og Prudens Mapstone skrev på sin hjemmeside:

It will be 50 years this coming November since the term ‘Flower Power’ was first coined in Berkeley, California, and used as a passive resistance slogan for non-violent protest against the Vietnam War.  By the ‘summer of love’ a few years later, the movement had spread; the term ‘flower child’ was synonymous with ‘hippie’, and a counterculture had sprung up embracing psychedelic music and art.  This art style is often recognizable from its simple, graphic, brightly coloured, poster-like designs; and as many flower children sought a return to basics and simple living, crafts had a resurgence, and a distinctive style of no-rules crochet sprang up as a small part of the hippie, grass roots ethos.

Prudens samlede alle delene fra de 208 bidragsydere fra 24 lande til et imponerende freeform vægtæppe på 10 x 1.5 m ialt 17 kg. Det har været vist på flere udstillinger.

På denne hjemmeside kan man se det store vægtæppe, alle de indsendte enkelt dele, billeder fra udstillingerne samt kommentarer til det.
