Stitched Vogue covers
Inge Jacobsen, a photography student at London’s Kingston University, has gained a lot of recent attention for her intricately cross-stitched Vogue covers. The artist explains:
With the over saturation of images, my practice seeks to intervene in this overwhelming consumption from the mass produced and alter it to create something unique. By using intricate and, at times, painstaking technique such as embroidery, I am disrupting the easy consumption of these images. For example I’m in the process of creating a series made up of covers of Vogue magazine that I cross-stitch into. This process makes the covers very tactile and it creates something that is impossible to reproduce on a large scale because each piece is unique and handmade. I feel I have taken it out of circulation and made it something of my own.
