A couple of weeks ago I spotted this new yarn bomb on Rathdowne St. At least I think it’s a yarn bomb. Certainly there is yarn involved.
I was tickled. I wondered who had put it there. Maybe a feminist pom-pom making collective?
A few days later I was walking along the same street and noticed that the yarn bomb had been altered to appeal to a wider audience.
Who’s responsible for this? A retaliating group of equal rights activists that just wants everyone to get along? An indignant member of the public that likes street art but wants it to be suitable for audiences of all ages?
This is one of the great pleasures of street art, watching a piece evolve from one thing into something else. I’m glad I took photos to capture the process.
