haute idea: just a theory: women can soften the world

Everything should have a cozy, don't you think? Theresa Honeywell is the creatrix behind the motorcycle cozy. Marianne Joergensen organized a fabulous art project in Denmark to address a political message of Denmark joining the Iraq war. Volunteers from many European countries and USA contributed nearly 4000 pink knitted and crochet squares, they were assembled in front of the Contemporary Art Centre in Copenhagen. These ideas are testament to how traditional female crafts enforce values such as home, care, proximity and time for reflection. Not to mention non-violence and literal softness. Unforch, I do not know who to credit the VW cozies to. Boo.
