Illustration

Nike Schroeder

Loving this raw, unfinished embroidered illustration work by Berlin-based artist Nike Schroeder. Via her web site:

Her work is composed carefully and extremely detailed and at the same time seemingly rough and unfinished, leaving the ends of the thread hanging out of the pictures like a possible accident. The loose thread adds an incidental component which is sometimes the result of coincidence and at other times the consequence of precise calculation. Either way the falling threads enrich the work with a movement, the association to gravity and the resemblance of possible body fluids such as blood.

@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

Christopher Jobson

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.

See more via her web site. What a great 600th post for Colossal. (via fubiz)
