made by german designer Selma Alaçam. Her project heart strings combines her favourite songs, that even as a child she liked, the height of cool to be covered in brightly-coloured band paraphernali, as she calls it. Maybe you will recognize some lyrics from Depeche Mode or Fiona Apple. The project contains seven woven rugs int he Kelim traditionembroidered with typography verses. Enjoy them!
By Nava Lubelski, working with the idea of destruction and restoration, tearing and cutting stained areas of a painted canvas then carefully repairing them with embroidery. The web-like structures over the larger holes are beautiful and embellish the repair work in such a precious way, the contrasting colours on the final image really stand out for me too.
In the video for British heavy metal band Throne’s song “Tharsis Sleeps,” the directors Nicos Levesey (also a member of Throne) and Tom Bunker went all out and created the first ever, frame by frame stitched video. The animation and sewing took several months to do and many all-nighters using over three thousand embroidered “frames” and over 45 million stitches. Check out the colorful, incredible video/work of art below:
