FABRIC GAS STATION A PROTEST

At the corner of East Colvin Street and Nottingham Road in Syracuse, N.Y., sits perhaps the only gas station that ever protested gasoline. This abandoned station was the home of the World Reclamation Art Project, and it was once covered in knitted, stitched and crocheted fabric squares that were submitted by participants worldwide to protest the world’s dependency on oil. People from across the globe sent Jennifer Marsh their handmade squares, and the International Fiber Collaborative sewed the panels together to completely cover the gas station.
