In Stitches

I love coming across new art mediums, especially when items of such contrast are somehow combined to make something so beautiful and interesting. Enter Michael Cox; an artist that stitches embroidery through x-rays and MRIs. While I can't help but conjure comparisons to The Day of the Dead or something Tim Burton would animate, I also see these pieces as representation of the fine line between life and death; medicine and art. While science delivers indisputable information, art can elaborate with images of the imagination.
