Gas Station Reclamation

Jennifer Marsh is the founder of the International Fiber Collaborative, whose work is now on display by the roadside in Syracuse, New York.

With the help of professional and amateur artists from 15 countries and more than 2,500 grade-school students in 29 states, Marsh covered the 50-year-old former Citgo station — pumps, light stands, signs and all — with more than 3,000 fiber panels that are crocheted, knitted, quilted or stitched together.

The theme of the panels is oil dependence and its effect on community. The project is reclamation.

Awesome. Via Make.
