    Knitting in a Winter Wonderland

    ISSUE: Winter 2008, frontlines | December 1, 2007

    Multimedia artist Abigail Doan, who divides her time between New York City and Siena, Italy, describes herself variously as a "geomorphic agent," an "environmental tinker," and an "art-farmer." She explains, "I create tactile maps, floating topographies, and in situ souvenirs that highlight the delicate nature of our environs and the degradation of spirit that results from our repeated abuse of natural resources and shared terrain." A bit of a mouthful, perhaps, but the results of her forays into the natural world are simple and beautiful: anything from drawings and photographs to sculptured bundles of vegetation, or, as here, the whimsical interplay of snow-covered branches and crocheted fiber.
