Olek's crocheted Morris Minor – Click above to watch video after the jump

We can only hope that the art world has as much trouble understanding us we have trying to fathom its hows and whys. Brooklyn-based, Polish-born artist Olek just closed her installation, "Knitting is for Pus****" in which she swaddled a host of everyday objects in vividly colored crocheted garb. Everything from bicycles to televisions and living, breathing people got the yarn treatment, including a plaster remake of a 1959 Morris Minor. Near as we can tell, the vehicle isn't in any sort of operational state, so don't start thinking you can strip the threads and have yourself a decent project vehicle.

As of writing, the current bid is at $1,525 with the reserve not met and a little over nine hours left on the auction. If you're thinking this is your next must-have piece of modern art, head to the interwebs and get your bid going. If nothing else, it'd be a great way to get into a Morris Minor-shaped blanket. Hit the jump for a look at the installation's opening.
