Stitched Nostalgia

Lauren DiCioccio



Lauren DiCioccio  has created at least a dozen series of works you can view on her website
I've seen her embroidery on organza bags but have not seen these works.
Enjoy!

From her 'sewnews' series. Ms. DiCioccio  encases  entire issues of The New York Times in muslin, 
selects a photo from the paper; and embroider the image onto the fabric.

From '35mm sewnslides' Lauren collects 35mm slides and re-creates them as small embroidered works. 

She hopes the view is provoked with a pang of nostalgia for the familiar physicality of these objects. 
I am and I hope you spend a bit of wistful time on her site.
