bennington Museum Installation: Crocheting components in my studio

Here are some process photos of my installation for the Bennnington Museum. First I calculated the form  that wraps the column as a flat shape and then lay it out, full scale, on my studio floor. Then I begin crocheting, using the “fillet Crochet” technique and varying the size of these crocheted cells  to create a gradiant from light to dark. I started with 20  cells across which correspond to the  20 flutes on the column that this will wrap.
