This project was a massive undertaking by artist and professor Jennifer Drinkwater. I was brought on as an artist-in-residence for the project to provide technical expertise on fiber related quandaries, host workshops, provide instructions in zine form, and participate in a fiber art exhibit that took place on the interior of the building during a final reception before it was dismantled.
About the Intertwine Project: "Intertwine was a collaborative, large scale yarn-bombing of the façade of ISU Design on Main, a community gallery in the Main Street Cultural District in downtown Ames, Iowa. Over 1200 1’ x 1’ panels were designed and created by the public: knitters from 14 states across the country to collaborations of existing knitting circles in Iowa and groups located in Ames. Throughout the year, Design on Main hosted free workshops and fiber circles to support the project and encourage community building. Post-installation, the panels were transformed into larger 4’x8’ blankets to be donated to local shelters in central Iowa. This project was supported in part by grants from Burning Man, the Iowa Arts Council and National Endowment of the Arts, as well as funding from ISU's College of Design." -Jennifer Drinkwater
