Textile artist, fashion designer, Wanlass Artist-in-Residence and MAKER Liz CollinsKnitting Nation project made its West Coast debut at Occidental College on November 6. Over the course of a day, knitters used 450 pounds of yarn as part of the performance art piece. See more pictures here - it's truly amazing. (Photos by Marc Campos, Occidental College Photographer).

Liz also did a big zig zag yarn installation in Los Angeles - which references our Aphrodite and Zeus fabrics. It's called Distancer-Pursuer and it was in the Mullin Gallery at Occidental College. Here are a few images:

One of best things about being located in New York is the access to all of the wonderful Museums. The Pollack design studio recently took a trip to Whitney Museum to see the Yayoi Kusama exhibit. It was fantastic! 

As pattern makers we were awed by her work. The obsessive nature of her paintings created fascinating and dynamic surfaces. The evocative use of color and texture was absolutely wonderful. From installation work and photography to breathtaking paintings, we were thrilled by the show. We left feeling inspired and in awe of Yayoi Kusama’s work.

From Caos has been displayed on the walls of Gallery / Bar 89 on 89 Mercer Street in New York City for the past couple of months. Portuguese artists Pedro Virgilio Cunha and Sofia M Xavier are the two independent artists behind the experimental collaboration.

"The gallery has cool installations that are continuously changing, but this one is just really great. There is a lot of scale, vibrant colors, and it resembles GRAFFITI! I love graffiti! The space looks awesome!" -Jenia
