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!

  • Absolutely brilliant! New level

  • love the guts involved!

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

  • katy

    love this!

  • we just showed her in our last show at GARFO Art Center in Salt Lake! her rugs are awesome too.

  • 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?

    • yea i like that it is an intervention that is in no way negative

  • hahaha! that’s awesome… wonder if she ever takes stuff in the dressing room to sew.

    • i was thinking the same thing! would be easier!

  • Thanks everyone! Its been a lot of fun! and thanks a lot for posting

    • you are the best agustina!

  • lapetitefaon

    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!

  • moni trucco

    agus cada dia te admiro mas! recien ahora me doy cuenta lo que hiciste. vas al thrift store buscando una pilcha y en lo que elegis, te encontras conque un hada buena te dejo escrito algo lindo, para el alma.una carica con palabras. besos, la suegri.

  • omgggggg girl crushhhhh! how amazingly creative

  • <3

  • Ewa

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
