Out of the ether . . .March 11, 2017
A couple years ago we knit nylon rope into squares that stacked on themselves and became these whimsical Seussian like trees lovingly called the "knacks". Last year we did giant woven cloth maps which were pretty fun but this year created these large panels with recycled, up cycled, knitted pieces that looked like under water creations. I loved them! It was such a great mixture of texture, color and use of found items that came together in such a fluid way. For much of the month of Jan and Feb I was knitting up little barnacles to contribute to the other knitted and created pieces from the team.
And that is just one team- there are multiple teams and groups all working together to create a visual experience to go along with the fest- by far one of the incredible shining stars of our town. For the films- we managed to make 13 out of the 14 we signed up for. My favorites were Whose Streets, The Road Movie, and I Am Not Your Negro. A short that really leveled me as well was Edith and Eddie.
I am still taking in all of the films I saw including the 4 hour Grateful Dead film, Long Strange Trip. Thank goodness for copious amount of coffee shops available to help get through it all! So out of the ether of last weekend and into the hum of 365 more days before the next T/F!
