The National Forest Service has invited the Yarnbomber AKA Steve Duneier and his team to decorate the boulders in the mountains of Santa Barbara one more time! The installation starts tomorrow, Friday June 6 at 7am and will disappear forever Sunday June 8 at 5pm. If you missed it the first time, now’s your chance to see the home-knitted coziness wrapped around massive hunks of nature. Duneier’s goal with yarn bombing is to get more people to notice nature. Where his bombings will take place and when are kept a secret until the very last minute and only lasts 9 days before it is taken down.[see_also]
Duneier explains what inspires his yarnbombing installations:
Just a simple, beautiful analog endeavor that, for an instant, overpowers an increasingly cynical, digital world. The “Whoas!”, “Wows!” and smiles that instinctively interrupt deep conversations and exhaustive panting as hikers turn the corner and see them for the first time, serve as evidence of the power of the installations.
