Giant Stitched Squid – Darwin and the giant stitched squid

    Newer Older

    My giant Stitched Squid, Plarchie, made for London's Natural History Museum. Made from 162 plastic bags and a whole lot of stitching.

    For the whole tale see the Whodunnknit.

      Darwin always did strike me as the classic, stereotypical wise old scientist.

      He looks even better wearing a squid.

      Oh man, this rocks so incredibly hard!
      1) It's a squid. Squids rock!
      2) It's knitting. Knitting is cool!
      3) It's reusing plastic bags. That's cool!
      4) It's public artwork, rock!
      5) It's posing with artworks, yeah!
