@MayorEmanuel Embroidered Tweets

March 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Enterprising textile/embroidery artist cauchy09 has begun stitching some of @MayorEmanuel‘s most epic tweets into lovely embroidered notes. Quick backstory: Columbia College journalism professor Daniel Sinker recently outed himself as the individual behind a foul-mouthed twitter account that satirized former chief of staff (and Chicago mayoral candidate) Rahm Emanuel in the run-up to the 2011 election. This clip from the Colbert Report should explain everything. These embroidered tweets could become a cottage industry.

2011 Embroidered Calendar

February 20, 2011

Iwona Przybyla created this DIY embroidery calendar concept that would come packaged with the materials needed to stitch the typography for each month. I think regardless of your skill level with needle and thread you would feel pretty accomplished finishing the year. Really beautiful. (via typography served)

Traumgedanken: A physical hyperlink book by Maria Fischer

January 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

GGrr kmvmdgfffff uy. Hold on, trying to pick my jaw up off the keyboard. Traumgedanken (Thoughts on Dreams) by German artist Maria Fischer is a 76-page collection of literary, philosophical, psychological and scientific texts on dream theories interlinked with thread.

To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming. Analogue to a dream, where pieces of reality are assembled to build a story, it brings different text excerpts together. They are connected by threads which tie in with certain key words. The threads visualise the confusion and fragileness of dreams.

Stitched Illustrations by Peter Crawley

December 22, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Embroidery month continues here at Colossal. After a road trip across the U.S., Buckinghamshire-based artist Peter Crawley was inspired to stitch his travels onto a map. Apparently Crawley took to the medium rather quickly and he’s been unable to put down the thread ever since. His portfolio is chalk full of architectural renderings, geometric forms, typography and other illustrations all painstakingly sewn into pierced watercolor paper using cotton thread.

When I started working on Colossal in earnest last August I did’t anticipate the rash of embroidery that would eventually makes its way here. This work by Daniel Kornrumpf is astounding.
