|<nettime> Literal Net Art|
*I wonder why it took me so long to find this. This Japanese-Canadian personage is a self-described net artist who makes art with big fabric nets.
http://iwan.com/photo_Hakone_Pavilion_Tezuka.php"Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam is one of Japan's leading fibre artists, and one of a very small number that sometimes use knitting or crochet in their work. Living in Canada, she now specialises in creating large, interactive textile environments that function both as imaginative and vibrant explorations of colour and form, at the same time as providing thrilling play environments. "She was born in 1940 and attended Hibiya High School - a school known throughout Japan for it's high standards. She studied fine art at the Tama Art University, Tokyo, followed by a Masters at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Michigan."
