Artist Covers Potholes In Paris With Knitwork [VIDEO]
There are more roads in Michigan with potholes than without,of course you drive here so you know that. Point being, if the artist your about to read about and watch was to knit pothole cover’s for the roads here, it would be a lifetime of work. Artist Juliana Santacruz Herrera was fed up with Paris’ pothole problem. So, like any upstanding citizen, she did something about it. Read more and see the art work after the jump.
Only in this case, instead of contacting her local representative, she took the matter into her own hands by knitting multi-colored plugs and filling in the crevices herself.
She calls her piece ‘Projet Nid de Poule’ (or Project Pothole), which you can view for yourself in this incredible time-lapse video of potholes being filled on Boulevard Belleville.
What a great way to reclaim public space.
