Just bought the latest issue of Sculpture magazine, which had a feature on American artist Orly Genger. I had never heard of her before...she makes amazing large-scale installations consisting of crocheted rope. I read that the bottom image, Big Boss, was crochet entirely by hand by Genger and consists of 100 miles of rope. Totally amazing...imagine how muscular she must be!
More on Genger here.
