Septa Mordane would be so proud, and in all honesty, so would my Grandmother!
There are so many Kim Possible jokes I could make right now but I’m holding back because there are more important things to discuss.. like, say, for example the concept of the digital and the material becoming interwoven (get it, woven). This week, instead of having eye-sight and sleep, I decided to represent the merge of digital and tangible in the form of a cross-stitched QR code. This stitch is loosely (and I say loosely because the proportions are out and the code doesn’t actually work.. sigh) based on the QR code that takes you to this very page! Despite the fact that the code itself doesn’t scan, the stitch still stands for something (alliteration at its finest)!!
Ahh the thrill of convergence! The adrenaline of cross-stitching!
Is this Hyperreality? Or is this just fantasy? Is my stitching on par with the Intelligent Glass concept, or the solar-roadways? Watch this video and make a decision for yourself. At this stage my stitch is just art because it serves no practical purpose, but it does serve meaning: that the digital and material world can coexist.
On a side note: Hi Grandma, I know you read my blogs and it wouldn’t be a fair reference without saying that you inspired me this week! Give Barney a pat from me and i’ll have you know that I’ve been turning my tea-pot in the correct anti-clockwise and clockwise motions before drinking it. I also own 4 teapots. You’d be proud. I’ll visit soon!
