This is another cross-stitch image of my long-term project „Stitch it!“, started 2008 with my master degree project at the New Design University and finished with the support of a fury staff member. The idea behind this is to subject famous press photos to a process of transformation via media transmission and technical reduction (of colour space and image resolution). It’s not only the image itself that transforms. Maybe there is also a change in perception of the image and the circumstances of its emergence. With this project I would like to encourage people to think about distance, knowledge, appropriation, reality and time.
