Yoshimi Kihara uses newspaper as her raw material and uses the most basic of knitting stitches, 'knit and purl’, to construct these incredible works of art. In her own words:
“ Recycling is not really the theme of this work. I wanted to make something that wasn't trying to be beautifully crafted or following some notion of balance and harmony. So the choice of material is more to do with using something very down to earth, something lacking an intrinsic beauty of it's own”.
