There is something terrifically creepy about the crochet-covered people in this thrift store homage music video by San Francisco music duo Seventeen Evergreen. My eyes could not turn away from the scene that looks like mummification in crochet. Delightful.
I watched it twice – once in its small size when I found it via Tales of a Techno-hooker and then again by double clicking on it and watching it in full size. I totally encourage you to watch it in full size to get the full amazingness of the crochet creations.
De Seventeen Evergreen website explains that the video, directed by Terri Timely, is based on the concept of “woollen terrorist warfare amidst everyday thrift shop mundanity”. I can see that.
It looks like the artist for the knit and crochet work is Sarah Applebaum. I wasn’t familiar with this artist before now but a quick Google image search tells me that I need to learn more so I’ll be researching her and writing up what I find for Monday’s crochet artist profile post next week. In de tussentijd, enjoy the video!
