Watch: Artist Cynthia Delaney Suwito Is Knitting Noodles

It is lunchtime and Cynthia Delaney Suwito is cooking a packet of instant noodles. But it’s not for a quick meal. Rather, she’s using it to make a piece of art. With her nifty knitting needles, the 23-year-old Singapore-based Indonesian artist is creating a small tapestry comprising strands of cooked instant noodles. Her needlework – or noodlework, as it were – is called Knitting Noodles, and it’s a performance piece: “I’ve been knitting instant noodles since late 2014. I was doing it because I wanted to contrast the idea of time. How I’m doing something very slow to something ‘instant’ like instant noodles. And by using this, I’m actually making the process of knitting slower than it should be. The purpose of it is actually to make people slow down and take a break from this ‘instant’ world”.
