Inkjet print (Hand-typed tapestry).

Emily Lazerwitz's artistic practice focuses on the intersection of art, craft, technology, and language. In her "Tapestries" series Emily works with digital means to weave traditional designs and creates an oxymoron - hand-made digital pieces - that stresses the way technology has affected human communication.

"The technology loses its sense of speed and effortlessness. It is clear how painstaking the process is. The slowness of the work is its protest. It is further heightened by the fact that the texts woven into the pattern are written in a language only computers can understand – binary. The language in the works becomes meaningless through the very translation that makes it so easily shared. To the human eye, it is simply an aesthetic object and a feat of patience, but when plugged into the computer it becomes a story: the very story that is hidden in plain sight." Read less
