“Oktoberfest is the world’s largest funfair held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It is a 16-day festival running from late September to the first weekend in October with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. Locally, it is often simply called Wiesn, after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds (Theresienwiese) themselves. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the original Munich event.”

“Following on from other projects the sculpture is constructed with sustainable materials and creates an artificial reef for marine life to colonise and inhabit, whilst drawing tourists away from over stressed natural reef areas.

With our oceans and coral reefs currently facing collapse from numerous threats including; overfishing, ocean acidification, global warming and water pollution the piece symbolizes the burden we are currently asking future generations to carry and the collective responsibility we have to prevent its collapse.”

Apparently, yarn-bombing is a thing

According to Wikipedia, “Yarn bombing, is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.” Pretty cool if you ask me!
