Digits and digital

Recently, I saw a great non-Italian combination of gli antichi ed i moderni—in the thesis project of Juliana Frankovich, a recent Rutgers graduate and student of former mentoring colleague Jackie Thaw. Using old-school embroidery techniques (which are based on squares akin to pixels), Juliana created a series of thirty hand-sewn cards.

In her thesis statement, Juliana Frankovich notes that the series and signage for her installation
. . . together emphasize the general relationship between modern technology and the DIY work ethic as well as more specific design-related topis with an emphasis on hand-crafted materials.

Kudos for the way Juliana Frankovich threads together digits and digital.
