Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Houston but also spent time in France during my high school years.

Have you always been creating art? 

I didn’t consciously choose art, but I always wanted to work in a creative field – that may have meant baking and cooking to designing clothes…. and now working with this medium.

What made you start knitting? 

I first started in high school when I wanted to make a scarf for a boyfriend I had  –  we broke up before I finished it so I didn’t really think about it until I started it years later.

Where did you get the idea to start yarn bombing public spaces? 

I started with the door handle to my clothing shop and witnessed a surprisingly strong reaction by people who passed by. It intrigued me, so I wanted to see what the reaction would be to wrap something outside of my world and in the public space. The reaction was even stronger. It made sense at the time to keep exploring this. Clearly I was developing a passion here-everything was new back then … covering a tree seemed like a really cool idea 10 years ago….or a park bench, fire hydrant, etc.

What did you start putting knitted art installations in places where they don’t “belong?”

That’s what intrigued me – that was the premise to me – “where does this NOT belong?”  I was drawn to places where knitting didn’t have a place. It was interesting to see where this material could coexist. In most cases, something sort of magical happened… it made the object or surface come to life in a way that didn’t exist before.

How does color play a role in your pieces? 

Clearly color is essential and plays a major role in my work. Color just makes sense, because usually the objects or surfaces I am covering are lacking in color …..or at least bright colors. This allowed me to get “Dr Seuss”  with color and pattern and even form.

Do you think your work is helping to modernize knitting and crocheting? 

Clearly this form of street art is recognized globally now. One can stumble upon a wrapped stop sign pole almost anywhere in the world.  Do I think I’ve modernized it? I think the reason why people respond to the work is because it’s taking knitting out of its domestic environment and doing something somewhat rebellious with it. I think anyone who has an unconventional approach to craft is hard to ignore. It’s been described as subversive in that it falls outside the expectations of what people believe knitting is for. In most cases, it is to keep you or your loved ones warm. My knitting goes beyond function. I’m not making pullovers-I’m wrapping city busses with it.

What is the largest piece you have ever done? 

Pieces started to compete with each other. The scope of work always seems to be insurmountable at first but exciting as well.  For instance, the  6 story column in Dover Street Market NYC for Comme de Garcons was equally challenging to the double decker bus in London. But it’s not a matter of size — some of the smallest pieces can have the most meaning and impact.

What do you want people to know about your work?

I come from the thinking that I want people to assess it on his/her own. I’m not the kind of artist who feels like I need to explain the concept or mission. Although I do enjoy speaking about my work in an academic setting, I also see no need to explain to a 5 year old that “you’re smiling because of this reason.” I want people to enjoy it or not to enjoy it, and both reactions are valid.  My work allows for people to enter into a dialog they otherwise wouldn’t have with their surroundings. It enhances the ordinary in everyday life. When people engage with this change unexpectedly, I feel like I have done something right.

CHIAOZZA (pronounced CHOW-zah) is an art and design studio led by Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao. In 2012, it began as a grounds for experimentation bridging these disciplines, the studio believes that play is an essential part of daily life and that appreciation of humor, beauty, and utility are at the core of what it means to be human. CHIAOZZA produces a number of unique and limited edition objects, including sculptures, furniture, and interiors.

Check out CHIAOZZA’s “Lump Nubbins” now available at Tenoversix! Lump Nubbins is a series of small sculptures made from recycled paper pulp.  Junk mail, old bank statements, scrap paper, and newspaper are torn apart and stewed together for several days to create a pulp.  The pulp is pressed by hand or through a screen, forming lumps that are then carefully transformed into Lump Nubbins with paint and painted paper, and set on a plaster or concrete base. “Lump Nubbins” is a fun and unique little gift for the home!  We love the colorful and fun personality each one has to offer.

People I’ve Loved is a small printmaking workshop run by Carissa Potter & Heather Van Winckle.  They specialize in hand-printed & assembled objects, in an Oakland farmhouse with a lemon tree. People I’ve Loved cards are now available at TENOVERSIX!


Meet one of the makers, Carissa Potter from People I’ve Loved!


Who are you?

I am a person of people lucky enough to live on this planet at this time and in this space.

What’s your sign?

My smile. I have been thinking a lot about signs as of late. Specifically how they know that they are in love. This is a really tricky one. And through all my research I still have very little to say about what makes some people want to stick out the bad times with someone, and not another… But I am a Taurus. I don’t know if I believe in signs…  With my partner, I had to give him a sign that I wanted to be with him forever and ever. This to me was the true test that what we had was really something. So I smiled. 

I’m from…

Minneapolis Minnesota. Land of the lakes, cheese curds and Prince/the sign

My first job was…

At Caribou Coffee in High School. I love making things that make people happy and taste real good. I could totally do it again. I am not sure why I am not doing it now, actually. 

My favorite color…

That changes. Some who know me well would say that I have a disposition to be adversarial. So I tend to like whatever the person sitting next to me does not like. BUT for years I have been in love with Pantone 337c. This came from the experience of one of Ernesto Neto’s works while I was living abroad. It was such a wonderful work that it changed my color tastes for now like 10 years… Crazy what art can do.
carissa pantone

My favorite song…

Right now, I would have to say that I am really into my sister. Quigley. She lives in la. In the past we have had major issues, I have always been really jealous of her talent and beauty. Also, she has this magnetic quality to her when you meet her that is unearthly. Anyway, it took many years to be able to just enjoy her, and not feel like it was always a competition(this was always only in my head. Not sure if it was ever even real…). It has been really wonderful to really be happy for her, and not just say that I was. I believe in her with all my heart.

My favorite scent…

Anything calming. I need that shit.

I can’t live without…

coffee in the mornings. I have been really into the concept of being bored as of late. I think that we need more bored time. I have not been bored in like ten years and I literally live in fear of it. However, I have been reading that that is when TRUE creativity happens, so I should look into that. Maybe. 

The last thing I ate…

granola. I am obsessed with finding the perfect granola recipe.

I’m reading…

LOTS OF BOOKS ON THE SCIENCE OF LOVE for my book coming out in 2016. Wait for it… It might totally suck, but I am working my best to make it not suck. 


I love to say…

“That’s real.” “Truestory.” “Duh.” Heather and I have a joke where we say “No Drama.” It is totally because this one Australian lady said it once to us. And I didn’t get it, I think what she meant was “no worries.” Just the mention of “drama” was dramatic in my mind, and I got all huffy. I think I might have cried. Now we say it and it is kinda funny. But really I think the joke was always on me and how I am stupidly sensitive, and that communication is hard all the bloody time.

Cats or Dogs…


My dream job is…

What I do now 😉  Getting to work with Heather on projects is super fun! 

The best thing in the world is…

You. You reading this right now. You know it.

The last thing I bought…

stamps. I go through so SO many stamps. I still believe in the magic that the USPS provides us… Think about it, they make real objects appear where you want them to, through time and space. David Blaine, eat your heart out, you will never be as cool as the US Postal System. Google David Blaine when you have a chance, he is pretty rad.

lady legs

The best decision I ever made…

Going to Grad School even tho I am 100k in dept… wah wah.

The best thing about TENOVERSIX…

Megan! She is super wonderful to work with and all the other makers – I feel so proud to be among you wonderful folks. 

I’m addicted to…

pop music. 

My best friend…

is my partner Josh. Cliche, but factual. Never believed that I could find someone as sweet as he is to spend my one and only life with. 

Best advice….

Take one thing at a time. & worry less. it’s a total waste of time, however, I my most popular past time is spent worrying…

When you walk into Tijuana’s TJ IN CHINA Project Space, there is an incongruency between what you see and what you hear. Before you are two works by May-Ling Martínez and Claudia Algara, a teepee-like structure surrounded by intricate drawings on the gallery walls and documentation of a black-and-neon performance that took place in the gallery during the show’s opening, respectively. What you hear, however, is the loud crash of glass being broken over and over again. All three pieces are part of the exhibition SCHEMA: 3 CAMPOS DE ACCIÓN (SCHEMA: 3 ROOMS OF ACTION), and while as a triangulation of work they create an interesting conversation around space and performativity in various practices, the piece we’d like to focus on (and have been thinking about obsessively for the past two weeks) is the one making all that noise.

The loud shattering is constant, and each time you hear it, your body can’t help but twitch a little. It’s one of those noises that you know you’re supposed to run from, but this is an art gallery, so instead of giving into instinct, you climb up the stairs to the loft space from which the sound is emanating. The first piece you can clearly make out is also the source of the disturbance. Depending on how your entrance into the space lines up with the video, this may be obvious or it may take a few seconds. Across the wall from you is a man – Aldo Guerra, the untitled installation’s author. He is barefoot, dressed in a white t-shirt and grey pants, working against the exact wall he is being projected onto. He walks over to the left side of the projection, picks up a pane of glass, places it on a shelf on the right side of the projection, marks it down the middle with a rock, then breaks it with that same rock. He cleans up the mess (remember, no shoes), pushes it to the side, and starts all over again. Only five panes are broken in total, made clear by the five panes of glass in various states of destruction and the rock used to make them as such, all of which have been placed on a shelf to the left of the space. The video, however, is looped. five singular acts play out ad infinitum. They originated in the past, but play out in the present, and soon become part of the past and present of the viewer. Guerra’s action and memory become our own.


Next to the broken panes is the text for the installation – a vague, poetic confession of sorts. It is reminiscent of a letter written to a newspaper by a serial killer or a sad manifesto written on a blog by a soon-to-be mass murderer. This contextualizes the space in which you are standing, as a crime scene, the aforementioned work standing in as evidence of this “something that hasn’t happened yet.” As with the rationalization of most notorious killers, Guerra only ever admits partial responsibility, while also taking full credit for the making of something new. “Remember,” he states, “there was nothing there” before his destructive actions. The space in which the audience is standing was bear, the walls empty. It was filled only with ideas of what could be there, but Guerra created what everyone is there to see. He also takes (at least partial) credit for the response of either his victim or the audience to his actions (or both). Now there is work to see, now there is something to respond to. The line between construction and destruction are blurred.

Also blurred in the text is the distinction between perpetrator and victim. In the last two lines of the statement, he writes “And then I invented you. / Nothing distinguishes us.” Cause and effect seems circular instead of progressive, and with this last statement, the crime scene in which you stand takes on an heir more strongly reminiscent of Dr. Frankenstein’s lab than the site of a massacre. Also indistinguishable is whether the writer of this text is speaking to his victim, ostensibly someone the viewers in the gallery do not know, or to those in the gallery themselves. It was, after all, created for public display. It feels as though it is based on something specific, but the language allows for it to be both to and from anyone who might read it.


This reflection of the audience in the work does not end there; in the middle of the installation is a large, vertical, in-tact pane of glass in which the viewer can literally see herself. Before this pane lies a wooden stand with a notebook on it that is traditionally used at construction sites as the legal, documented method of communication between the proprietor, contractor, and project supervisor. Below it is vinyl text that reads “Solo escríbe el daño más grave que recuerdes haber causado” (Only write the most serious damage you remember having caused). While, upon looking through the book, it is clear that some have taken those instructions more seriously than others, the act of both writing the worst thing you can remember doing on paper, in an official document, while being able to watch yourself write it, especially within the context of the work around it, further implicates the audience in the sentiment of the text. On the other side of the glass – which one can see through but is slightly more reflective on the side of the writer – is a closed notebook of the same kind, under which is written “Es lo que olvidaste” (This is what you forgot). As you watch someone else enter their worst offense into the first notebook, you are forced to consider the wrongs you have committed that may have been more serious than you realized.


Throughout your interactions with various elements of this installation, the glass is still shattering, continually and loudly. At first it seemed as though the video was a recording (a haunting, a memory) of the crime in and of itself, with the glass as a stand-in for the victim. After being forced into a roll of active participant, as someone who, like Guerra, has done horrible things, the metaphorical quality of the video extends past notions of the two, seemingly isolated roles of on either side of the break. The audience relates to both parties, and in doing so, starts to break down the division between them. There is no exceptionalization of one side in this space.

When you are on the side of the closed book, staring at whomever is writing in the open one, you see them clearly, but your reflection is present, as well. Your images, your stories, your secrets, for the briefest of moments, merge. You are both still together, you both twitch at the sound of glass breaking together. It’s awkward, a bit too intimate, as you both may be recalling intensely personal memories. Whether or not you choose to write yours down, they begin to replay. The past is once again thrown into the present, and the present either disturbs or reinforces the past.


SCHEMA: 3 CAMPOS DE ACCIÓN is open until July 17, 2015. TJ IN CHINA Project Room is open Thursday – Saturday, 12 – 6 PM.
