The age-old craft of crochet has recently been changing hands, and artist Magda Sayeg's 'Knitta, Please' project is one of the leaders of this movement. Using the soft handmade technique to bring a touch of humanity to urban structures, 'Knitta, Please' takes grandmother's hobby into a more adventurous arena.

The lead image and video come from a project that Magda Sayeg 'Knitta, Please' did for Insight 51, and the others come from installations around New York City and Sydney and Canberra, Australia in the past year.
