Karen Norberg and Marjorie Taylor’s anatomically correct knitted brains are absolutely mind blowing to me, not only do I find these pieces very aesthetically pleasing but are also accurate to the human brain is astonishing as I’ve been struggling getting my head round a simple knit and purl.

Techniques used include traditional Nova Scotian rug hooking, quilting, applique, embroidery, beadwork, knitting, and crocheting. Materials include fabric, yarn, metallic threads, electronic components such as magnetic core memory, and wire, zippers, and beads. Seeing how a use of variety of materials and techniques can produce something so spectacular has inspired me to start thinking out the box and want to continue pushing my knitting further than an array of swatches.
