Reisestickerei - Embroidery of a journey


The Reisestickerei / Embroderies of a Journey are embroideries done during a trip. The gesture is identical to the act of fixing notes through writing or sketching, yet here, the tool used is the embroidery.

The Reisestickerei follow a movement: traveling the distance between point A and point B - bei it by train, ferry or on foot. And along the way, to collect impressions and embroider observations.

During a journey the body is in constant movement, the mind is unrestricted and the hand is free. Experiences are fugitive, they produce wonder and astonishment. As the eye captures arbitrarily, the hand fixes through embroidery. There is a transformation of a movement into a form of writing.
