KIYOKU-NO-STITICH (A stitch of memories)（Trial）
This work is one of the embroideries I presented as my graduation thesis.
In the work, I expressed that memories and archives crisscross and are reassembled as a new memory, using a newspaper published on the date when I was born.
The string of characters that look readable but are actually unreadable not only expresses the ambiguity of memories, but also becomes an interesting attempt to experiment with typography.
I replaced the newspaper, or paper motif, with pixels, and then reproduced it in an analog manner. In addition, I intentionally enlarged a familiar-sized object. By doing this, I was able to make the work interesting enough to offer extraordinary impressions and give it density and strength as a material object.
I used the cross-stitch technique to give the work the meaning that it is a multiplication of a memory with an archive. But most of all, I feel that I just wanted to stitch.
I was very glad to receive the award as I could rediscover the power of handwork.
I will be happy if I can continue to use my hands to produce works in the future.
