I was very intrigued when I came across Danish artist, Hanne Bang's call for submissions for her project "In a War, Someone has to Die". I think I saw it on Mr Xstitch first, but I've seen several embroidery blogs mentioning it as well. Hanne asks for participants to submit a handkerchief with the project text stitched into it in one's own language. This project strikes a chord with me- its collaborative nature, its use of a personal piece of cloth, not to mention its representation of the human cost of wars- so many of which seem so unnecessary.
Here is my submission in progress:
My Stitch and Surface students were assigned a "text" project, so this is simultaneously serving as an exemplar. I hope to get it in the mail to Denmark by the end of this week.
