amazing crocheted playground

Japanese fiber artist Toshiko Horiuchi-McAdam had to order yarn by the ton to create this, her most recent large-scale installation piece: a fully interactive crocheted playground for children, in the Open-Air Museum in Hakone, Japan. Doesnt it look so amazing? Featuring swings, nets, cushions, and all sorts of little tunnels and pockets to hide in, the playground reminds me of the in and out-door playgrounds at the City Museum in St Louis--only so much cozier. And, presumably, safer, since theres no hard material upon which to fall. Also, maybe all of the fiber would muffle sound, and make it quieter? Probably not... but either way, this has majorly inspired my dreams of a playroom for Felix in the future. Can you even imagine?! I wonder what gauge of wool she used??
