Nights, the Cosmos, and I

Nights, the Cosmos, and I is about the geometry of the cosmos. It investigates the aesthetic quality of the sewing thread as a graphic resource, using embroidery to illustrate an original poem about nighttime and its wonders.

Using the principles of subtlety and minimalism, three colors of thread merge with silkscreen-printed lines, encouraging you to take a more attentive look at the details, thus revealing their texture and tactical quality.

The binding choice – an open accordion book cased in a hardcover – makes it possible to keep the thread ends out of sight, but still not completely hidden, for the process counts here as much as the result itself.
