String Theory

These pieces of urban lace art by NeSpoon, a Polish artist, have been called urban art, a twist on graffiti, a commentary made in crocheted granny lace.

They look like doilies, lacy spider webs creating unexpected connections between pipes, walls, concrete, streets, twigs, leaves.

For me, these surprising string concoctions are a visualisation of the invisible lines that connect the environment in which we live: Street, signpost, beach, vineyard, trees.

The only part missing, for me, is perhaps the presence of a few humans crocheted into their surroundings. A reminder that we are part of what’s around us, and it’s a part of us.
