I haven't met many people who feel yarn bombing is a form of public defacement. In comparison to other forms of graffiti, it's usually temporary, easily removable and doesn't leave any lasting trace. I will admit I almost always ask permission - I'm a girl scout that way. My work is very labor intensive and nearly impossible to install covertly. I don't want to waste my time creating something that will be removed after just a few minutes. I realize that by asking permission I'm legitimizing my act of installing art - it's no longer a spontaneous and rogue venture. As my installations become more popular and I'm invited to create site-specific art for business and corporations I move further away from the graffiti tag.
During my career I've created numerous installations for Seattle Parks & Rec, as well as The Alliance for Pioneer Square, Seattle Sounders, Kemper Development, Seattle Design Center, Rowley Properties, The American Lung Association, Redmond Town Center, Google, and Brooks Sports.
