Avant Garde Knitting

*If you are squeamish or grossed out by blood, or hate tattoos and piercings, don't click on the links*

I saw on Modblog today the blood scarf. I find it very creepy and fascinating.
The artist is Laura Splan. She uses knitting in a variety of ways to make her art. I really like the juxtapostion of ideas presented in her work. The pieces that combine time-consuming, loving, and cuddly aspects of knitting and the cold, clinical and impersonable aspects of medicene. For these reasons, I particulary like the knitted exam gown. Those things make me feel more naked than being naked. Mabye if they were all handknit, perhaps out of cashmere...
