Textile Sculptures Created From Dozens of Multicolored Orbs by Serena Garcia Dalla Venezia

September 8, 2016

Chilean textile artist Serena Garcia Dalla Venezia creates thoughtfully composed arrangements of hand-sewn fabric balls, producing texture and depth by grouping together dozens of differently sized and shaped spheres. Appearing almost like organic growths, her works seem to be transforming before your eyes, which makes sense when you consider her fascination with accumulation and chaos. You can see more of Venezia’s smaller works and large-scale installations on her website. (via The Jealous Curator)

Favorite Place: An Embroidered Stop-Motion Music Video for Black Books by Christophe Thockler

books-4

Is this the first music video made exclusively with embroidery and sewing implements? I’m gambling yes. Directed, filmed, and produced by Christophe Thockler the clip uses 10,000 photographs of needles, thread, cloth and embroidery, mixed with clever lighting techniques to produce a fun video for Favorite Place, the latest track by US pop rock band Black Books.

A remarkable embroidered mattress by UK artist Louise Riley. Her sewn translation of pencil sketches to textile art are also amazing, a good example can be seen here (vaguely nsfw). (via saatchi)

Sewing Machine Orchestra

April 6, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Sewing Machine Orchestra is a sound and light performance by Canadian artist Martin Messier. The eight 1940-1950s Singer sewing machines are interlinked with a micro-controller system without need for human interaction. I found myself wishing the video was a minute or two longer, but impressive nonetheless.

Update: Found a longer clip on YouTube that includes an interview (in French) with the artist:
