Sewn Slides

Lauren DiCioccio creates amazing tiny sculptures that recreate vintage photo slides using thread and fabric. From her website:

These embroideries are life-size sculptural recreations of 35 mm slides I have collected. I am drawn to slides as precious objects: the fragility of the translucent negative material and intimacy of the scale of a palm-sized slide are particularly endearing- I hope to capture this tenderness in my sculptures. To make these little pieces, I embroider directly onto bridal organza, a very delicate translucent material, and allow the excess threads to pour out the back and hang down the wall.
