Step into this Seattle park and you're sure to get a shock; Suzanne Tidwell is the princess of parks, decking their foliage and structures with warm wool.

Suzanne Tidwell is certainly an imaginative artist; for this installation, she decided to cover the trees in a park with knitted scarves striped with color. The knitting must have taken forever, but the effect is definitely worth it. This park looks like it came right of a Dr. Seuss book; it's bursting with whimsy and patterns.

Hopefully Suzanne Tidwell continues to make creative and interactive public installations like this. Who wouldn't want to step into her world for an afternoon?

Implications - Consumers have become desensitized to advertisements due to their abundance in society. Instead of print or digital forms of advertising, they now appreciate publicity stunts or public installations; these are more memorable and interactive methods of marketing.
