Yarn-Bombed Einstein

Olek ist eine Street-Artistin aus Polen und häkelt weltweit Zeugs ein, jetzt hat sie eine Einstein-Statue in Washington eingewollt. DC was not amused.

Olek says Einstein, for her, was an easy choice since he was such a creative thinker himself. “I thought he might have a sense of humor about it,” she says.

Sadly, DC didn’t—Olek’s work was removed within hours. But she was sanguine about it nevertheless. Presumably this kind of thing is par for the course when you’re a guerilla yarn-bomber.
