Tapestry… you know… the stuff you grandma does.
Or does she?
Nils Viga Hausken works in a variety of mediums, but in the past ten years much of his work has consisted of cross stitch on linen. This embroidery work deals with aspects of time and Nordic tradition. Some pieces play off of Nordic china patterns, while others are strictly type, in what seem to be political and humorous statements, but I can’t be sure since they’re in Norwegian or Danish. And then there are the Legos! The universal language of Lego. The digitized-looking pieces are embroidered to pixelated perfection, and, well, they’re just kind of fun.
The QR code series brings tapestry into the 21st Century. Love this concept!!
