Karina Thompson has been working within studio textiles for over 20 years. Through a link with VSM (UK) ltd and Pfaff sewing machines she has recently been experimenting with digitally programmed stitch. This new work is an examination of the way that digital technology is used in the treatment and diagnosis of illness. By programming in advance with a computer she is able to use stitch with pin point accuracy and in ways she could only have dreamt of when she first started.
This digital stitch has been produced for exhibition and site specific commissions. Please contact Karina for details.
