Amy Long is a Phoenix MFA student who uses crocheted fibers and hand felted wool to create lovable alien-like figures. Unfortunately, since they're on exhibit (it's her thesis show), you can't touch, hug, or squeeze. But don't you wish you had a basketful of these soft cuddly tentacles instead of stupid teddy bears when you were a kid? More pics after the jump.
These are extraterrestrial sea anemones.
The show is in Tempe, Arizona until the end of the week. Images by Bekathwia
