Poetry Bombing with Agustina Woodgate

Agustina Woodgate has been going into thrift stores and secretly sewing poems inside the clothes. I want to marry her. I previously posted her hair sculptures here. Watch the video below!

    Love it! Kind of reminds me of the movie “Elling” where the main character would put his poetry in sauerkraut packages.

    Well, I haven’t seen this one before! When I read what this post was about, I was thinking of stitched lettering on the clothes but this is a much better idea as it’s not affecting anything about the clothing, simply adding what looks like an additional label but with something much more interesting written on it – who could be annoyed at receiving a short and sweet little poem with their items?

    so cute! I’ve found poems left in library books but I do like that there is something more permanent to these pieces than a paper which would be easily discarded without even a pause, brilliant!
