The Counterfeit Crochet Project

counterfeit-crochetStephanie Syjuco created a website soliciting crocheters to join her in hand-counterfeiting designer handbags. Participants troll the internet and choose a design that they particularly covet, working off of low-resolution jpgs which they download. The final results may or may not bear resemblance to the originals.
How this project can be similar to contemporary manufacturing and distribution channels. As a collaboration it parallels the idea of “outsourcing” labor, but also adds a democratic and perhaps anarchic level of creativity to suit their needs. {via}
