Visual festival – catering communitive art in vibrant installational setting

Who spun the spindle, bound a band of bundle
Threads of life of different kinds.
United unique lines, twisting, turning in the twine.
Who swang twins of twine, sampled to weave.
Transcribed for the tune, seized the slightest strand.
Knit the eye, hear the line, coil the mind, the one which is mine.
Listen, learn, knitter here, far yearning yarn
Plaited pair becomes the same

Poem - Annina Lybeck
