spinning in transit

I met Robyn Love in Corner Brook a couple of years back when I became part of a the West Coast Craft Collective, a group of (mostly) women artists. Robyn is an artist who lives the winters in New York City and the summers in Gillams, Newfoundland. Her art practice brings knitting and spinning into the common spaces of public and urban life. She just sent me the link to a short film her friend Susan Forste created called Spindle 7 as part of a project of the same name. The project took Robyn back and forth on the #7 train with her spindles and wool in 2008, meeting people and teaching spinning between Main Street in Flushing (Queens) and Times Square in Manhattan. Please watch! There are so many things I love about this video.....
