Laura Katherine McMillan. Size: 9 pieces, 5.5”x 5.5” Medium: Machine and Hand Embroidery in Petri Dishes Year Made: 2010 Cell Series "I began this series of embroideries as a way to fuse my background studies in anatomy and kinesiology with my passion for textile art. Revisiting old text books brought back not just information I would have to memorize for its function but a wealth of beautiful imagery. I began to see the cells as a series of intricate textures and shapes. "
Although I don’t like to do it often, sometimes falling down the internet rabbit hole for hours on end can be a rewarding experience. When I last fell into the digital abyss, I came up for air only to realize I had been on the computer for two and a half hours. Shameful. Thankfully, my watering, computer-damaged eyes were not in vain, for I had discovered something wonderful: Catharine Ellis and her shibori weavings.
