Doilies in Razor Wire

Crystal Gregory calls her project "Invasive Crochet" -- the imposition of dainty doilies into harsh places. She writes that it:

[...] challenges gender roles by placing handwork on hardened city surfaces around New York. Crocheting lace doilies onto the razor wire of an abandoned lot for the 14th Street public art show Art in Odd Places, smothering the urban landscape in a soft, decorative, and familiar juxtaposition.
