NYCTALOPS, or night blindness, is inspired by the dark, dreamy horror zines and films of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. Nyctalops brings together felting, knitting, and other surface embellishment to evoke the image of a dreamy, hardly human woman. This collection represents the weird beauty found within the darkest corners of the imagination and the deja vu of nightmares.
