Tokyo-based textile artists Mana Morimoto hand-stitches black and white photographs with colorful thread to create a unique, somewhat surreal effect. Her love of geometric shapes, embroidery, and weaving all come together in a self-described “creepy and funny” contemporary style. Morimoto enjoys the idea of combining digital and analog in her work. She converts all her images to black and white, prints them out, pokes holes through the image with a needle and proceeds to add the colorful threads, often emanating from the subjects’ eyes. There are many more pieces on her MNMRMT tumblr.
