Mimosa Out Of Reach

Up Here is a public artwork created by Liisa Hietanen out of crochet. She crochets some amazing life-size work. This one literally sits inside a Hämeenkyrö elementary school in Western Finland. It’s called TÄÄLLÄ YLHÄÄLLÄ (just try it) but students have nicknamed it Mimosa, as it clearly implies champagne and orange juice. I hope these kids are too young to have read A Separate Peace.

In addition, she uses her yarn-based craftiness to capture likenesses of folks in her village. Then the art is displayed in her town. Which means at some point, you may actually stumble across an image of yourself in your ugly winter sweater, with your very dog, who may have mixed reactions at that point.

As usual, I don’t get it. But it sure is interesting.
