If you never had a chance to polish up your nautical skills, it is time for you start some knot therapy, just like Windy Chien did for the past year, in her project The Year of Knots. The Hawaiaan artist and designer went through a-knot-a-day ritual that resulted in a rich composition of white and black ropes, golden metalware and wood. To start this “new alphabet”, she began from the sailor’s essentials, slowly shifting from technical learning to a blissful state of flow where to observe the “elemental building blocks of art: line, form, shape, space, texture, and color”, as she explains.
