Southbank is ‘bombed’

Southbank is ‘bombed’ Image

The “yarn bombing” craze has hit Southbank, with the footbridge that connects Southbank to Flinders St Station being converted last month into the “Blooming Bridge”.

The trend, where inanimate objects throughout the city are covered in yarn creations, aims to brighten up the concrete jungle appearance of the city.

The piece was created by newly-formed group Yarn Corner and their founder Bali said the group had been together for a year. It is a worldwide collective of 161 artists, who love the challenge of large-scale projects such as this one.

Bali also said they had created a fair bit of buzz about the practice in recent times.

“We do one or two large-scale projects a month and have been featured in the media quite heavily since International Yarn Bombing Day in June this year,” Bali said.

She said the inspiration for Blooming Bridge was similar to that of other works they had been involved in.

“We are always inspired to make the harsh surrounding of the city into a softer sight and this was just another one of our projects,” Bali added.
