Stranges Rouges in motion

Strange Rouges are a branch of the Pepe Cocolo family. It consists of one hundred sorts of egg-balls of many different sizes, woven in crochet with plastic thread of two different shades of red. They are like an empty membrane that doesn’t need to be filled with anything to maintain its stability. Such emptiness explains why their shapes can slightly change according to the weight of the material. We can associate them with the different forms there are in nature: so, they look like strawberries, but not exactly; they look like mushrooms, but not exactly. Finally, they are a kind of strange red amazing bugs moving about in a natural background or environment.
