California-based artist Lauren DiCioccio hand-embroiders her pieces based off of imagery seen in old issues of The New York Times.
DiCioccio says, “I describe the beauty of the ritual experience of newspaper-reading by describing the paper as a tactile and fragile object in the language of craft.”
Each piece includes a full issue of The New York Times wrapped in cotton muslin. One selected image is then hand-embroidered on the front of the fabric, where details are not exact and layers of colorful thread mix together and hang from the cotton in messy waves.
