Toshiko Horiuchi-MacAdam crochets a playground in Japan


Halifax, Canada based artist Toshiko Horiuchi-MacAdam has built this colossal eye-popping colorful playground through crocheting. Working with a team of assistants, the artist crocheted and hung nets, swings, cushions, and pockets for children to play on and explore. I’d love to experience it in real-life but alas, it is far away in Japan at the Hakone Open Air Museum. Amazing!

According to KnitJapan, as “one of Japan’s leading fibre artists” Horiuchi-MacAdam “specializes in creating large, interactive textile environments that function both as imaginative and vibrant explorations of colour and form, at the same time as providing thrilling play environments.
