Ruth Asawa's Crochet Metal Sculptures

Ruth Asawa was a San Francisco based artist who recently passed away. She contributed many pieces of public art to the area. What I love most personally are her crochet metal sculptures, which she did across decades, some of which can be seen inside DeYoung Museum. More info: www.crochetconcupiscence.com

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
