Crocheted Art that Takes You Back in Time

 

 

 

 

 

For Brazilian artist, Ernesto Neto, crocheting is more than just a mere distraction to pass time, it is a means to sculpt time. The bimorphic environments he created makes time move backwards as you become a child again maneuvering through the webbed walls. His work, now showing as “Cuddle on the Tight Rope” in Nasher Sculpture Center in Texas, is also based on the relationship between our body and the world that surrounds it with rhythm playing a huge part in it.
