Future of the City Award

The Future of the City Award started when thirty two different artists were asked to image what a futuristic city would look like. The artists were in four different categories: fotografía, diseño, textile and food. It’s now been narrowed down to the top two artists in each category, so there are eight finalists, and voting continues to see who will be the winner.

Ganchillo artista Carol Hummel

Carol Hummel is a crochet artist who is best known for her recent work crocheting a tree cozy for a public outdoor exhibit. In her answer about what a futuristic city would look like she saysit’s time to take back our cities, to throw back the cloak of gray and expose the colorful, the creative, the thoughtful, the funand that’s exactly what she does by adding her colorful yarn work to the urban landscape.

Guerrilla de Ganchillo

I already knew about Carol Hummel and her terrific crochet work but I didn’t know about this crochet guerilla who also works to bring colorful yarny creations to the streets. Guerrilla de Ganchillo is a group of yarnbombers based in Spain and they imagine a future ofchillout cities where citizens can dance and walk barefoot, sit on the floor to have picnic with friends while waiting for the bus.
