Pack Rat Magazine says “Spoon!”
Check it! (said in a Beastie Boys voice) I found this Hamburger Dress created by Colorado based artist Joy Kampia O’Shell in 2005 recently and went completely mooney eyed over it. It’s both fun and beautiful at the same time. Here’s the artist’s statement regarding her work in general:
“Because I enjoy the irony between subject matter and material, I have merged my favorite subject matter (food) with my favorite process (crochet). I love food too much to be satisfied with its transience; therefore I am driven to give it permanence through art. I am a passionate advocate for crochet as an art medium–going beyond its traditional uses and exploring its limitless possibilities. By taking both food and crochet out of their ordinary settings, I hope to challenge the viewer’s preconceived notions of their roles.
And I hope it makes people hungry.”
