building visits

5000ML_ErlenmeyerSweaterSkirt-2I met designer/artist Lara Knutson last week in the MAD museum’s studios. Lara is a resident there and we had a very free wheeling conversation that included life lessons and exuberant explanations of all her wonderful ideas. Really a conversation of Wonder. Lara is currently taming a material she discovered during her master’s work and seeing where it will lead her. Shown above are towers knitted from glass tread. The tread or material conducts a lighting phenomenon that looks basically like fairy sparks-no other way to say it. Lara is one to watch her ideas are extraordinary and using light as a material makes her closer to Merlin than Corbusier.
