Found Objects

Found Objects is the third project of ARTivention that partnered with knitters around the country to create miniature knitted sweaters that were then placed in public locations. Finders were encouraged to make a donation to the National Coalition for the Homeless via an attached tag provided to the knitter by the artist. An accompanying blog detailed each placement of the 365 sweaters that were placed from 2010-2011. Found Objects was featured in the Surface Design Journal, and a few other publications throughout the country.
