Radical Lace & Subversive Knitting »Long viewed as the domain of grandmothers, needlework has undergone an image makeover in the last decade. Snowboarders, the old torchbearers of alt.

Rather than be pedantic about definitions of lace and knitting, McFadden has selected, along with work that is knitted or made of lace, work that is inspired by knit or lace patterns. Herzog traces portions of this original pattern with the introduction of a distinctly industrial, aggressive material: industrial staples that hold in place the fragmented remains of the textile.
