Underwater Crocheting

Olek is an artist noted for her bold and public use of yarn. She practices extreme crocheting by covering entire rooms, statues, and even a 4-car train with yarn. Recently, Olek took her crocheting passion to new depths at the Underwater Museum of Art, which is located off the coast of Yucatan. She coated two bomb-like sculptures in yarn (or, you could say, she yarn bombed them) in order bring attention to the endangered whale sharks that live in the area.

The museum is set on a coral reef, so Olek used colors similar to local corals. She was careful to use biodegradable yarn that would not pollute the sea as it breaks down. You can see more photos of the project at Hi-Fructose.
