Combining the traditional and the technological, LAUREN DIXON-PAVER explores digital animation created through the medium of needlework in stitch.gif. With each frame of animation individually handstitched, this exhibition presents a new perspective on both digital video, and the ways in which supposedly archaic arts and crafts can be modernised for the digital age. Paver seeks not only to slow down our perception of animation to allow for the appreciation it so deserves, but also to offer embroidery a new thread of life in the digital age where so many believe it to be outdated. This unlikely pairing is a marriage that offers perspective on both of these marvellous media.
