August 27 2016 Own Our Own Time V was performed at the opening of In-Situ Textile Art Installations at Moon Rain Centre in Quebec Canada. 83 participants saved time in the form of a monumental knitting. During one hour time became visible as blue laps in this ongoing art project. The participants were both skilled knitters and beginners. It was a warm, cheerful, messy, loud and unforgettable experience. Own Our Own Time V was carried out in + 30 C .
Can you knit something cold?
