Zac Monday's crochet costumes and drawings are animated through performance experiences that are intended to direct how both the viewer and the maker interact. When performed, crocheted characters are focused on guiding viewers through art and everyday spaces, where our emotional and spiritual sensations can be expressed through textile touch; an enigmatic significance, as well as storyline. The guides created are made to communicate the observation of human existence through handicraft, the Unconscious, and the Figure. Monday encourages an engagement from viewers that stimulates not only the corporeal mind and body, but specifically the emotional and spiritual aspects of art viewing.
