WOVEN MUGSHOTS


I just discovered American textile artist Joanne Arnett (via The Jealous Curator) and i'm completely in love. Arnett "weaves large scale portraits with wire so the face is visible when light bounces off it. The images shift, like a giant daguerreotype from positive to negative depending on where the viewer stands, or sometimes they completely disappear into the plane of fabric. " -The Jealous Curator
