Enclose, Bea Camacho, 2005
Single-channel video, 11 hours

This video work deals with ideas of isolation, security, shelter and of shaping one’s own environment. The video documents an eleven-hour performance during which I crocheted myself into a cocoon using red yarn. I crocheted continuously without breaks and the video shows the entire performance in real-time.

Knit Fort, by Matt Gagnon

The structure can be made in various sizes to fit individual needs.

The fort is made out of small pieces of hardwood (either plantation grown teak or reclaimed wood) that are bound together with rubber cord. This loose form of construction allows for a quiet personal area that is still illuminated by natural light, giving the interior space a healthy and relaxing atmosphere. According to the designer, the wooden lattice setting “creates a positive yet contradictory experience of feeling private while still being visible.”
