At Yarn Bombing @ Your Library, Honorio Penadés shares the link to a fascinating read by Calimaq Silex about the use of public domain images in serendipitous, artistic ways that bridge a global community: “By the grace of digital, so that’s how snowflakes illustrating a book of 1863 digitized by a library in California found themselves on an Open Source cap made in Berlin with a knitting machine hacked!” (as translated by my web browser from the original French). Could a library’s public source image inspire your next yarn bombing art?
