Knit The City

You will find under this post a link to Knit The city. I find the Concept interesting however not pushed to its full extent. It is a way of re-defining what is urban art, but we are here dealing with a very old craft skill added to the city. How sustainable is this?
For me this intervention raises not only many eyebrows but as well as many issues around what is called gorilla art.
Why do people feel the need to get themselves known through intervening in a public space, yes we will speak of you , but in the long run what is your message , what are you trying to say?
People thriving for recognition.
In my opinion this concept would be a lot stronger and more justified if the knitted pieces were custom made to where they were going to be placed. As for now they seem to be randomly placed in the city, and if they aren't , it feels like this.
Its either you go for it or you don't, half way never works in the long run.
