knitted wall sculpture

Construction Two | Tyvek Wall Sculpture by Lori Victor

Construction Two, 2024. Painted Tyvek was hand-cut into very thin strips and knitted together into a 15-inch wide, five foot long work that was then mounted onto the wood support into a spontaneous organic shape.

"Currently, I am concentrating on the use of Tyvek, the material used in wrapping construction projects. I was introduced to this material through an earlier group art project focused on climate change. Although it is obviously counter intuitive to be using a material that is basically made of plastic, the Tyvek I use is leftover ends – or waste material – that is normally discarded."
