“Two Pages”

embroidery on canvas, tea, 2006


This work shows my transition into using embroidery as a foil against the mechanical nature of technology to explore ideas of modern individuality. Here I embroidered “Page 1 of 2” and “Page 2 of 2” onto each panel of the diptych in Times New Roman. You can see the ring left from using the hoop. I used a tea mixture to transform these pristine panels into something rougher and more human, exploring issues of individuality in the digital age.
