An interactive installation now in full swing along the Bowery as part of NYC’s Festival of Ideas [1], the “Room” by Polish artist Olek [2]is an amazing crocheted world featuring everything from a crocheted bike to a crocheted toilet to even crocheted humans. Jump ahead for the exclusive pics [3] of this colorful feast for the eyes, snapped up by our intrepid reporter Yuka Yoneda [4] — and believe us, no surface was safe from Olek’s colorful crocheting powers!
