Esbat Stitches – Digital Embroidery That Looks Like Distorted Video

Artist Vaka Valo‘s Esbat Stitches is a series of digitally embroidered works on canvas which look like patterned captures of distorted video. The images look like heavily manipulated photographs until close inspection reveals them to be glitch inspired needlework.

The raw material comes from images the artist captures from Chinese television. The source images are then digitally processed using a method analogous to subtractive synthesis in sound and the visual wave forms already present are manipulated and distorted before being digital embroidered.
