Submitted by Mythagorie who explains, “this artproject takes place in Essen, Germany. It is about using urban knitting for experimenting with a way of local communication. People can create a message for friends and combine it with symbols taken from the german folklore. A special website is used to inform about the meanings of the symbols and to send the message. The Designer creates a picture out of the chosen symbols and make a knitted piece out of it. After some days it will appear on a traffic light or street lamp close by.”
