Luminescent Cross Stitch

Start Exploring

These three pieces were installed in Los Angeles, CA, as part of a corporate collection. They consist of fluorescent rope and eye hooks in a cross stitch embroidery pattern. Though the stitch is something mechanical, the forms become also organic due to their symmetry and repetitive or cell-like structure. The blacklight illumination from above gives each piece a marine quality, recalling bioluminescent organisms.

The titles are motivational quotes about movement and finding your path. The enticing part of the pieces is unraveling the construction of the pattern – following the lines and seeing how they connect. Perhaps we need to look inward to find how to move forward.
