Hand-Knitted Sweaters That Make You (or your Dog) “Disappear” In Public Places #ArtTuesday
Photographer Joseph Ford and his knitting collaborator Nina Dodd created this cute series! Via DesignYouTrust
We‘re used to the popular opinion that clothes are often designed to make people stand out from the crowd. Not in this case though.
English photographer Joseph Ford, who is currently based between London and Paris, collaborated with his knitter friend Nina Dodd and created a project that does the exact opposite – it makes you disappear in your surroundings.
People (and actually one dog!), who participated in this project called “Knitted Camouflage,” wear custom hand-knitted sweaters by Dodd that make them blend into their environment. The series also includes the famous cat on the wall by French street artist Monsieur Chat who becomes “invisible” in front of his artwork.
