KNITTING AS A JOURNEY
To see the technique of knitting as a journey of time.
How knitting represents the topic of time?
My thoughts started already when I remembered Penelope from Homer’s Odyssey.
“While her husband Odysseus was off fighting the Trojan War, she fended off lovestruck suitors with a bargain: she would choose a new husband when she finished weaving a shroud. She then wove the shroud by day and undid it by night, delaying her answer until Odysseus finally returned.”
I see my knitting journey as a reflective moment for myself, humanity, and also the city of Genk. Maybe this is a time when we have to take time and look back on our journey together.
What is the journey of Genk?
What has happened to the city of Genk at different times?
How knitting could tell the story of Genk?
