Noodlework! Knitting With Instant Noodles!!

/ by

Instead of slurping down a savory bowl of instant noodles, artist Cynthia Delaney Suwito uses the cooked ramen as YARN for KNITTING!

I’m not kidding, LOOK:

Her project is called Knitting Noodles and this “noodlework” aims to “slow viewers down.”

It contrasts the concept  of the preciousness of time. Putting an object that symbolize the need of having a fast or even instant result but needing a long time to create such result and keep on slowly knitting it to perfection.

To prove her point, she just kept knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting…


Until she was done! Here’s what this finished piece looks like:


Would you try it?!

    Try to do it or try taste of it? Wow. Lovely and paradoxical masterpiece, not to mention about hard work. Wonderful logic contradiction: easy – hard, fast – slow. And this is beautiful. And funny. And it’s all noodles! By the way this can be seen as metaphor for any creative work. Applause, definitely. Thank you for sharing this noodles …. I mean – this idea, Pee-wee !!!
    (I will not try to do it, because the temptation is too great. The process can be infinite, if every time eat finished part of knitting).

    And knitting…and knitting. Stop!…I know! Lol. The question is not why, but why not?! Thanks for the post Pee Wee!;)

    I may try. Though, if my stomach growls, for food, I’m afraid I’ll have to eat those noodles.
