Embroidered Newspapers by Lauren DiCioccio

California- based artist Lauren DiCioccio uses needle, thread, and cotton muslin to "mummify" newspapers. The newspaper's photographs and portraits are punctured and woven with pockets of color, bringing her own style and life to aspects of each picture. "The dedious handiwork and obsessive care I employ to create my work aims to remind the viewer of these simple but intimate pieces of everyday life and to provoke a pang of nostalgia for the familiar physicality of these objects."
