Lauren DiCiocci

Lauren DiCiocci is a San Francisco based artist who’s work investigates the physical and tangible beauty of commonplace mass-produced media-objects. Most recently these things have been the newspaper, magazines, office papers and writing pads, plastic bags, 35 mm slides. The pieces shows in this post are titled “sewnnews” – a series which represent entire issues of The New York Times encased in hand-embroidered cotton muslin. Lauren selects a photograph from the paper; usually a strong image suggestive of power, leadership or communication; and embroiders the image onto the fabric.
