Single Strand Forward Motion


Single Strand Forward Motion utilizes the technology of crochet as one of the purest examples of a systematic and incremental building system in which the form of the finished work is a manifestation of its underlying logic. Each single strand shape begins with a set of “permissions” or rules such as “forward motion only,” “90 degree turns only,” “single plane” or “multiple planes.” There is no plan for what the finished work will look like - all decisions are made in the moment, as long as they qualify within the prescribed set of allowed actions. Each resulting work is unique, yet there is a strong formal appearance that characterizes the set of prescribed permissions.
