Doilies (2006)

"Doilies" 2004 computerized machine embroidered lace mounted on velvet 16.5" x 16.5" each (framed dimensions)

The design of each doily is based on the structure of a different virus. I begin with a digital image of the virus, which I then base a design on in a graphics editor. The design is then imported into computerized embroidery software and the stitches are laid out and manipulated. Finally, the designs are output from a computerized sewing machine.
