Old Stitchings New

Over 2009 I completed two series of text based cross stitch, the first being pretty cliched using small segments of song lyrics and tacky tiny image patterns, in order to allude to darker connotations. Then in the second semester I decided (with the encouragement of a lecturer) to embark on divulging segments of my prose and poetry into cross stitch format - these resulted in simple, small scale, black text, direct yet ambiguous pieces.

This year, I'm extending the idea even further, by working on rather large scale stitchings which portray rather short and once again ambiguous sentences, kind of including the idea of automation, with previously created prose as a starting point!
