It’s been a good while since we featured Evelin Kasikov’s work on the site. The London-based Estonian made a name for herself, after graduating from St Martin’s, for her unique application of traditional embroidery techniques to re-imagine CMYK printing and RGB on-screen imagery. Since graduating she’s been producing work for the likes of Wired, The New York TImes, Dezeen and The Guardian. Not a bad start to a freelance career.
Her most recent project Analogue/Digital, showcases the extent of her hand-crafted skill to “produce a tactile interpretation of analogue versus digital themes. Here, pixels and dots become physical through embroidery techniques. Four paper objects give a tactile twist to print and screen formats.” It’s an impressive combination of manual skills and process-driven concepts that combine to produce some truly beautiful objects.
