Group Knitting Event: OWN OUR OWN TIME VI

Use the form below to sign up to participate in the Prjónagleði Knitting Festival 2017 performance OWN OUR OWN TIME VI – a monumental group knitting event for 83 people taking place on Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 17:30 to 18:30 in Blönduós (exact location to be announced).

Event Description: Can you see time with the help of knitting?

 The start of this project was a desire to understand time, to feel time and get a physical sense of something constantly elusive.​
 For one hour a large group of knitters will meet and save a unique moment together. The link to knitting is a way to force time to adapt to a bodily tempo. A desire to slow the speed to a pace that is human. In this activity the one who knits the slowest controls the pace of the whole work. 

New ideas arise as the project develops. In which different context is it possible for future and heritage to come together in a natural experience? What can two sharp objects like knitting needles create in the way of protection and warmth? When does an object get loaded with care? How do you transfer knowledge wordlessly? 
We welcome you to take part in this ongoing art project.
