There are some things that drop into your mail box and make you say 'YES' the minute you read them. News of Knitsonik's kickstarter was most definitely one of them.
Knitsonik is the creation of Felicity Ford, an artist and academic who is best known for her explorations of recorded sound. Her projects often use field-recordings and interviews to explore the meaning of objects and social contexts. KNITSONIK is a division of Felicity's work in which she uses sound in order to explore the social, historic and geographic aspects of woolen textiles and clothing. Previous pieces included hand knitting a soundscape and her love of fairisle has made her a regular favourite at Shetland Wool Week.
